The knapsack problem is one of the most studied combinatorial optimisation problems with various practical applications. In this paper, we apply an elite opposition-flower pollination algorithm (EFPA), to solve 0-1 knapsack problem, an NP-hard combinatorial optimisation problem. The performance of the proposed algorithm is tested against a set of benchmarks of knapsack problems. Computational experiments with a set of large-scale instances show that the EFPA can be an efficient alternative for solving 0-1 knapsack problems.
