TitleEffectively Guiding Multi-objective Evolutionary Search by Discovering the Regularity Property

AbstractThe regularity property of multi-objective optimization problem (MOP) states that the distribution of the Pareto optimal solutions (PSs) of a $m$-objective optimization problem (MOP) exhibits a ($m-1$)-dimensional manifold structure under mild conditions. In this paper, we propose an advanced multi-objective evolutionary algorithm, called AMEA, in which a clustering analysis is employed to discover the PS's manifold structure. An advanced sampling strategy is then developed to effectively generate promising offspring from the learned structure. The developed sampling strategy generates offspring by Gaussian perturbation on individual non-dominated solutions using the variance-covariance matrix within its cluster. The other new features include 1) an adaptive hybridization of the developed sampling strategy with a DE recombination operator which aims to combine local and global information; 2) a re-using scheme which is to reduce the computational cost on the clustering; and 3) an adaptive strength Pareto based approach which is to adaptively determine the contribution of the developed sampling strategy and the DE generator for balancing exploration and exploitation. AMEA was empirically compared with four state-of-the-art MOEAs on a number of test instances with complex PS structure and complicated Pareto fronts. Experimental results suggest that AMEA outperforms the compared algorithms on these test instances in terms of commonly-used measure metrics. The effectiveness of the developed sampling strategy, the reusing scheme, the hybrid strategy, and the adaptive strategy was also empirically validated.
