Single row facility layout problem using a permutation-based genetic algorithm
TLDR
In this paper, a permutation-based genetic algorithm (GA) is applied to the NP-hard problem of arranging a number of facilities on a line with minimum cost, known as the single row facility layout problem (SRFLP). Expand

Multi-objective evolutionary algorithm for land-use management problem
TLDR
Land-use management problem/practice may be defined as the process of allocating different competitive land uses/activities, such as agriculture, forest, industries, recreational activities or conservation, to different units of a landscape to meet the desired objectives of land managers. Expand

A multi-objective evolutionary algorithm to exploit the similarities of resource allocation problems
TLDR
The complexity of a resource allocation problem (RAP) is usually NP-complete, which makes an exact method inadequate to handle RAPs, and encourages heuristic techniques to this class of problems for obtaining approximate solutions in polynomial time. Expand

Some convergence-based M-ary cardinal metrics for comparing performances of multi-objective optimizers
TLDR
In this article, three convergence-based M-ary cardinal metrics are proposed, based on different forms of dominance relations between two solutions, for comparing performances of two optimizers from their multiple runs. Expand
