Aiming to develop a highly efficient, nature-inspired optimization algorithm, here we propose a novel metaheuristic called Crystal Structure Algorithm (CryStAl). This method is chiefly inspired by the principle underlying the formation of crystal structures from the addition of the basis to the lattice points, which is a natural phenomenon that can be seen in the symmetric arrangement of constituents (i.e. atoms, molecules, or ions) in crystalline minerals such as quartz.
