@article{SMotta2012AMN, title={A modified NBI and NC method for the solution of N-multiobjective optimization problems}, author={Renato S. Motta and Silvana Maria Bastos Afonso and Paulo Roberto Maciel Lyra}, journal={Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization}, year={2012}, volume={46}, pages={239-259} }

Multiobjective optimization (MO) techniques allow a designer to model a specific problem considering a more realistic behavior, which commonly involves the satisfaction of several targets simultaneously. A fundamental concept, which is adopted in the multicriteria optimization task, is that of Pareto optimality. In this paper we test several well-known procedures to deal with multiobjective optimization problems (MOP) and propose a novel modified procedure that when applied to the existing…
