Genetic Algorithms for Multiobjective Optimization: FormulationDiscussion and Generalization

  title={Genetic Algorithms for Multiobjective Optimization: FormulationDiscussion and Generalization},
  author={Carlos M. Fonseca and Peter John Fleming},
The paper describes a rank-based fitness assignment method for Multiple Objective Genetic Algorithms (MOGAs. [] Key Method The fitness assignment method is then modified to allow direct intervention of an external decision maker (DM). Finally, the MOGA is generalised further: the genetic algorithm is seen as the optimizing element of a multiobjective optimization loop, which also comprises the DM. It is the interaction between the two that leads to the determination of a satisfactory solution to the problem…

On improving multiobjective genetic algorithms for design optimization

This paper presents some improvements to Multi-Objective Genetic Algorithms (MOGAs). MOGA modifies certain operators within the GA itself to produce a multiobjective optimization technique. The

Genetic local search for multi-objective combinatorial optimization

Constrained optimization based on a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm

An alternative approach for the constrained optimization problem is presented, a variant of a multiobjective real coded genetic algorithm inspired by the penalty approach that performs well in terms of efficiency and is robust for a majority of the test problems.

Multi-Objective Optimization by Means of the Thermodynamical Genetic Algorithm

The Thermodynamical Genetic Algorithm (TDGA), a genetic algorithm that uses the concepts of the entropy and the temperature in the selection operation, is proposed for multi-objective optimization and the computer simulation shows that TDGA can find a variety of Pareto optimal solutions.


The paper presents a method called MOGA-INS for Multidisciplinary Design Optimization (MDO) of systems that involve multiple competing objectives with a mix of continuous and discrete variables. The

Multi-objective Genetic Algorithms for the Method of Inequalities

For the effective use of MGAs, an auxiliary vector performance index, related to the set of inequalities, is introduced and a simple MGA with Pareto ranking is proposed in conjunction with the auxiliary vector index.

A niched Pareto genetic algorithm for multiobjective optimization

The Niched Pareto GA is introduced as an algorithm for finding the Pare to optimal set and its ability to find and maintain a diverse "Pareto optimal population" on two artificial problems and an open problem in hydrosystems is demonstrated.

Using the Min-Max Method to Solve Multiobjective Optimization Problems with Genetic Algorithms

A new multiobjective optimization technique based on the genetic algorithm (GA) is introduced, based in the concept of min-max optimum, and can produce the Pareto set and the best trade-off among the objectives.



An Investigation of Niche and Species Formation in Genetic Function Optimization

This contribution briefly describes problems preventing niche formation in conventional genetic algorithms, a crowding method for niche formation and analysis of results when optimizing two multimodal functions.

A Survey of Evolution Strategies

Evolution Strategies are algorithms which imitate the principles of natural evolution as a method to solve parameter optimization problems and adaptation of the strategy parameters for the mutation variances as well as their covariances are described.
