Multiobjective Optimization for Space Mission Design Problems


Multi-objective optimization is an active research field which is-among others- currently successfully applied in the design of interplanetary space missions. In this chapter, we give a short introduction to multi-objective optimization and give an overview of commonly used methods for the numerical treatment of such problems, addressing both deterministic and stochastic approaches. Further on, we briefly summarize recent works that deal with multi-objective space mission design.
