Real-world engineering problems often require concurrent optimisation of several design objectives, which are conflicting in most of the cases. Such an optimisation is generally called multiobjective or multicriterion optimisation. The area of research that applies evolutionary methodologies to multiobjective optimisation, which is also called multiobjective evolution (ME), is of special and growing interest. It brings a solution to many yet-opened real-world problems and questions. The aim of this book is to provide a representation of the state-of-the- art of multiobjective evolution research area and related new trends. This includes seminal research work as well as interesting application results. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • New algorithms for ME;
  • Genetic operators for ME;
  • Elitism in ME;
  • Parallel multiobjective evolutionary algorithms;
  • Comparison of multiobjective evolutionary methodologies;
  • Solving real-world engineering problems with ME.
