Evolutionary algorithms are very powerful techniques used to find solutions to real-world search and optimization problems. Many of these problems have multiple objectives, which leads to the need to obtain a set of optimal solutions, known as effective solutions. It has been found that using evolutionary algorithms is a highly effective way of finding multiple effective solutions in a single simulation run.

  1. Comrephensive coverage of this growing area of research.
  2. Carefully introduces each algorithm with examples and in-depth discussion.
  3. Includes many applications to real-world problems, including engineering design and scheduling.
  4. Includes discussion of advanced topics and future research.
  5. Accessible to those with limited knowledge of multi-objective optimization and evolutionary algorithms

Provides an extensive discussion on the principles of multi-objective optimization and on a number of classical approaches.

This integrated presentation of theory, algorithms and examples will benefit those working in the areas of optimization, optimal design and evolutionary computing.
