    The special catalytic and electromagnetic properties of cobalt-based binary alloy clusters have become a hot research topic. In order to explore their properties, it is necessary to determine the most stable structures. The structures of large-scale Co55Agn and Co55Aun (n = 1-55, 60, 70, 80, and 92) clusters were optimized by an adaptive immune optimization algorithm based on the constructed inner cores. The many-body Gupta potential function based on the tight-binding potential second-order moment approximation was used to describe the interatomic interaction in Co-Ag and Co-Au clusters. Results showed that the most stable structures of Co55Agn and Co55Aun (n = 1-55, 60) are mainly based on the Mackay icosahedra. The analysis of atomic distribution showed that the Co atoms are located in the inner layer, while the Ag and Au atoms are located in the outer layer, appearing core/shell configuraitons. For Co55Agn and Co55Aun (n = 70, 80, and 92) clusters, Co-Ag clusters adopt amorphous structures, but Co-Au clusters have Mackay icosahedral motifs.
