Weighting coefficients rt- are real values which express the relative "importance" of the objectives and control their involvement in the cost functional. In this approach the cost function is formulated as a weighted sum of the objectives: N F(x) = ^ r i / i ( x ) . 8) i=l However, this method has its disadvantages, for example, the weightedsum approach can be particularly sensitive to the setting of the weights, depending on the problem. An alternative way to determine Pareto front and solve multiobjective optimization problem is to use multiobjective genetic algorithm [Zitzler (1999)].
Unlike deterministic search algorithms that locate optima by systematically searching the solution space using gradient information (like Newton's gradient method), stochastic methods apply a degree of randomness to the decision-making process. The random nature of stochastic algorithms has discouraged their use in some applications, especially in the area of trajectory optimization, like Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP), where deterministic algorithms work better. However, the probabilistic elements in stochastic algorithms provide them a capability not possessed by deterministic methods - the ability to escape from a local minimum and stability in the presence of noise.
Since the algorithm is separated from the representation of the problem, searches of mixed continuous/discrete variables are just as easy as searches of entirely discrete or entirely continuous variables. One can use different representations for the individual genomes in the genetic algorithm. Holland worked primarily with strings of bits [Holland (1975)], but one can use arrays, trees, lists, or any other object. However, one must define genetic operators (initialization, mutation, crossover, copy (reproduction)) for any representation that one decides to use.
