An extension of generalized differential evolution for multi-objective optimization with constraints


In this paper an extension of Generalized Differential Evolution for constrained multi-objective (Pareto-) optimization is proposed. The proposed extension adds a mechanism for maintaining extent and distribution of the obtained non-dominated solutions approximating a Pareto front. The proposed extension is tested with a set of five benchmark multi-objective test problems and results are numerically compared to known global Pareto fronts and to results obtained with the elitist Non- Dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm and Generalized Differential Evolution. Results show that the extension improves extent and distribution of solutions of Generalized Differential Evolution.
