A Comprehensive Survey of Evolutionary-Based Multiobjective Optimization Techniques


This paper presents a critical review of the most important evolutionary-based multiobjective optimization techniques developed over the years, emphasizing the importance of analyzing their Operations Research roots as a way to motivate the development of new approaches that exploit the search capabilities of evolutionary algorithms. Each technique is briefly described with its advantages and disadvantages, its degree of applicability and some of its known applications. Finally, the future trends in this discipline and some of the open areas of research are also addressed.
