Central Force Optimisation (CFO) is a nature-inspired conceptual framework with roots in gravitational kinematics, a branch of physics that models the motion of masses moving under the in uence of gravity. This paper presents a review of CFO, its variants, and applications to engineering problems. Example applications include electric circuit design, antenna design, water pipe network design, and training of articial neural networks.
