Current and Future Research Trends in Evolutionary Multiobjective Optimization


In this chapter we present a brief analysis of the current research performed on evolutionary multiobjective optimization. After analyzing first- and second-generation multiobjective evolutionary algorithms, we address two important issues: the role of elitism in evolutionary multiobjective optimization and the way in which concepts from multiobjective optimization can be applied to constraint-handling techniques. We conclude with a discussion of some of the most promising research trends in the years to come.
