Conference Paper
The Planning and Scheduling (PS) problem plays a vital role in several domains, such as economics, military, management, finance, and games, where finding the optimal plan and schedule to achieve specific goals is essential. In this article, we present a Genetic Algorithm for the Planning and Scheduling (GAPS) problem in the StarCraft II Build Orde...
Article
The paper presents a redefinition of Multi-Skill Resource-Constrained Project Scheduling Problem (MS-RCPSP) as a many-objective optimization problem. In effect, it brings the problem closer to real-world applications. Five objectives have been defined: cost, duration, average cash flow, average usage of resources and skill overuse. To summarize MS-...
Chapter
This paper presents a method that took second place in the GECCO 2020 Competition on Niching Methods for Multimodal Optimization. The method draws concepts from combinatorial multi–objective optimization, but also adds new mechanisms specific for continuous spaces and multi–modal aspects of the problem. GAP Selection operator is used to keep a high...
Article
The paper introduces a novel many-objective evolutionary method, with a diversity-based selection operator and aims to fill the “gaps” in the Pareto Front approximation and to increase its spread. It shows, that guiding the evolution process towards the least explored parts of a space increases overall diversity, but can also lead to increased conv...

Article
In this paper a modified selection operator is presented in combination with classical Non-dominated Sorting Genetic Algorithm II (NSGA-II).

Furthermore...
Article
In recent years interest in multiobjective optimization has flourished. Many Quality Measures (QM) have been developed to allow comparison of results gained by many methods. Unfortunately significant amount of various QMs along with the lack of imposed taxonomy have caused vagueness in the naming conventions. Hence a cohesive taxonomy is proposed t...
