The W, C, & H Methods 4 Generating Pareto Solutions Prepared by: MA A-Sultan March 20, 2006 Reference: Entropic Vector Optimization and Simulated Entropy: Theory & Applications; Ph.D. Thesis, Liverpool University, 1991. http://library.liv.ac.uk/search/a?searchtype=t&searcharg=Entropic+Vector+Optimization&searchscope=0&S ORT=&SUBMIT=Search

MO Optimization MO Optimization Methods The Weighting Method A 1 st standard technique for MOO is to optimize a positively weighted convex sum of the objectives, that is, Optimize Non-ConvexWHY? Not adequate alone! Non-Convex Pareto solutions cant be generated; WHY? bi-objective For bi-objective example, will create a table like this: 0.8, 0.2 1.0, 0.0 0.0, 1.0 0.2, 0.8 0.35, 0.65 0.225, 0.775 Etc. Cause Headache? What if you have 3, 5, … 25 objs.?

The Weighting Method -w1/w2 Weights dont reflect objective importance at all!

6
MO Optimization MO Optimization Methods The Constraint Method A 2 nd standard technique for MOO is to optimize one objective while setting remaining ones to variable feasible bounds, that is: Optimize S.t: Values must be chosen so that feasible solutions to the resulting single- objective problem exist. Cause Headache? What if you have 3, 5, … 25 objs.? weights Virtually, there are weights here too!

7
The Constraint Method Effec. Cost Effec Cost Parerto Specifying a bound on Effec., defines a new feasible region which does allow Cost to be minimized to find a Parerto point.

MOPGP94 Report Generation of Pareto Solutions by Entropy- based Methods (MOPGP94 Report) Portsmouth, UK, 1994 * http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/3540606629/qid=1143034880/sr=1-5/ref=sr_1_5/002-0382939-5305662?s=books&v=glance&n=283155 pp. 164 - 194http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/3540606629/qid=1143034880/sr=1-5/ref=sr_1_5/002-0382939-5305662?s=books&v=glance&n=283155 interesting The authors present in this paper a method to compute the set of Pareto points for some multi-valued optimization problems. The paper is interesting and it must be published* since: new idea 1) The Authors apply the entropy method to the study of Pareto points which is a new idea used also by other authors to the study of scalar optimization problems; important aspect 2) The method presented by the authors can be used to compute not only a Pareto point but the set of Pareto points, which is an important aspect; interesting 3) The applications to engineering problems are interesting.
