Bat algorithm for multi-objective optimisation

Yang, Xin-She ORCID logoORCID: (2011) Bat algorithm for multi-objective optimisation. International Journal of Bio-Inspired Computation (IJBIC), 3 (5) . pp. 267-274. ISSN 1758-0366 [Article] (doi:10.1504/IJBIC.2011.042259)


Engineering optimisation is typically multi-objective and multidisciplinary with complex constraints, and the solution of such complex problems requires efficient optimisation algorithms. Recently, Xin-She Yang proposed a bat-inspired algorithm for solving non-linear, global optimisation problems. In this paper, we extend this algorithm to solve multi-objective optimisation problems. The proposed multi-objective bat algorithm (MOBA) is first validated against a subset of test functions, and then applied to solve multi-objective design problems such as welded beam design. Simulation results suggest that the proposed algorithm works efficiently.
