Multiobjective Problem Solving from Nature: From Concepts to Applications

Front Cover
Joshua Knowles, David Corne, Kalyanmoy Deb
Springer Science & Business Media, Nov 15, 2007 - Computers - 411 pages

Multiobjective problems involve several competing measures of solution quality, and multiobjective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs) and multiobjective problem solving have become important topics of research in the evolutionary computation community over the past 10 years. This is an advanced text aimed at researchers and practitioners in the area of search and optimization.

The book focuses on how MOEAs and related techniques can be used to solve problems, particularly in the disciplines of science and engineering. Contributions by leading researchers show how the concepts of multiobjective optimization can be used to reformulate and resolve problems in broad areas such as constrained optimization, coevolution, classification, inverse modelling and design. The book is distinguished from other texts on MOEAs in that it is not primarily about the algorithms, nor specific applications, but about the concepts and processes involved in solving problems using a multiobjective approach. Each chapter contributes to the central, deep concepts and themes of the book: evaluating the utility of the multiobjective approach; discussing alternative problem formulations; showing how problem formulation affects the search process; and examining solution selection and decision making.

The book will be of benefit to researchers, practitioners and graduate students engaged with optimization-based problem solving. For multiobjective optimization experts, the book is an up-to-date account of emerging and advanced topics; for others, the book indicates how the multiobjective approach can lead to fresh insights.
