A hybrid multi-objective evolutionary algorithm with feedback mechanism

A hybrid multi-objective evolutionary algorithm with feedback mechanism Exploration and exploitation are two cornerstones for multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs). To balance exploration and exploitation, we propose an efficient hybrid MOEA (i.e., MOHGD) by integrating multiple techniques and feedback mechanism. Multiple techniques include harmony search, genetic operator and differential evolution, which can improve the search diversity. Whereas hybrid selection mechanism contributes to the search efficiency by integrating the advantages of the static and adaptive selection scheme. Therefore, multiple techniques based on the hybrid selection strategy can effectively enhance the exploration ability of the MOHGD. Besides, we propose a feedback strategy to transfer some non-dominated solutions from the external archive to the parent population. This feedback strategy can strengthen convergence toward Pareto optimal solutions and improve the exploitation ability of the MOHGD. The proposed MOHGD has been evaluated on benchmarks against other state of the art MOEAs in terms of convergence, spread, coverage, and convergence speed. Computational results show that the proposed MOHGD is competitive or superior to other MOEAs considered in this paper. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Applied Intelligence Springer Journals

Abstract

Exploration and exploitation are two cornerstones for multi-objective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs). To balance exploration and exploitation, we propose an efficient hybrid MOEA (i.e., MOHGD) by integrating multiple techniques and feedback mechanism. Multiple techniques include harmony search, genetic operator and differential evolution, which can improve the search diversity. Whereas hybrid selection mechanism contributes to the search efficiency by integrating the advantages of the static and adaptive selection scheme. Therefore, multiple techniques based on the hybrid selection strategy can effectively enhance the exploration ability of the MOHGD. Besides, we propose a feedback strategy to transfer some non-dominated solutions from the external archive to the parent population. This feedback strategy can strengthen convergence toward Pareto optimal solutions and improve the exploitation ability of the MOHGD. The proposed MOHGD has been evaluated on benchmarks against other state of the art MOEAs in terms of convergence, spread, coverage, and convergence speed. Computational results show that the proposed MOHGD is competitive or superior to other MOEAs considered in this paper.
