I'm curious what are you doing that is different that the Neighborhood comparison done in:

J. Kennedy and R. Mendes (2006). Neighborhood topologies in fully
informed and best-of-neighborhood particle swarms. IEEE Transactions
on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics, Part C: Applications and Reviews,
Volume 36, Issue 4, pp. 515-519.
