Brain Storm Optimization Algorithm for Multi-objective Optimization Problems


In this paper, a novel multi-objective optimization algorithm based on the brainstorming process is proposed(MOBSO). In addition to the operations used in the traditional multi-objective optimization algorithm, a clustering strategy is adopted in the objective space. Two typical mutation operators, Gaussian mutation and Cauchy mutation, are utilized in the generation process independently and their performances are compared. A group of multi-objective problems with different characteristics were tested to validate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm. Experimental results show that MOBSO is a very promising algorithm for solving multi-objective optimization problems.
