Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In this study, we investigate about a learning of multi-layer perceptron (MLP) by using firefly algorithm. The firefly algorithm is one of optimization algorithm. We give weights of connection of MLP for optimization task of firefly algorithm. In general, the MLP is trained by a back propagation algorithm (BP) which uses the steepest decent method. We compare the firefly algorithm with the BP about characteristics of weights to be learned and confirm that the firefly algorithm can search the wide range in the solution space than the BP.
