Front Distribution: Shows the number of solutions per front obtained after applying non-dominated sorting to the combined population of parents P and oﬀspring Q. Here, we report results for fronts F1 ∼ F5 . 1 Simulation Results and Discussion Preparation In this work we use NSGA-II as a base algorithm and include in its framework Neighborhood Recombination. We observe the behavior of conventional NSGAII and NSGA-II with Neighborhood Recombination varying the population size from |P | = 100 to 5000 individuals.
IEEE CEC 2003, pp. uk Abstract. We consider the choice of clustering criteria for use in multiobjective data clustering. We evaluate four different pairs of criteria, three employed in recent evolutionary algorithms for multiobjective clustering, and one from Delattre and Hansen’s seminal exact bicriterion method. The criteria pairs are tested here within a single multiobjective evolutionary algorithm and representation scheme to isolate their effects from other considerations. Results on a range of data sets reveal significant performance differences, which can be understood in relation to certain types of challenging cluster structure, and the mathematical form of the criteria.
