A dynamic multi-objective particle swarm optimization algorithm based on adversarial decomposition and neighborhood evolution
Many multi-objective optimization problems in the real world are dynamic, with objectives that conflict and change over time. These problems put higher demands on the algorithm’s convergence performance and the ability to respond to environmental changes. Confronting these two points, this paper proposes a dynamic multi-objective particle swarm optimization algorithm based on adversarial decomposition and neighborhood evolution (ADNEPSO). To overcome the instability of the traditional decomposition method for the changing Pareto optimal front (POF) shape, the proposed algorithm utilizes the complementary characteristics in the search area of the adversarial vector, and the two populations are alternately updated and co-evolved by adversarial search directions. Additionally, a novel particle update strategy is proposed to select promising neighborhood information to guide evolution and enhance diversity. To improve the ability to cope with environmental changes, an effective dynamic response mechanism is proposed, including three parts: archive set prediction, exploration of global optimal information, and retention of excellent particles to accelerate convergence to the Pareto optimal set (POS) in the new environment. The proposed algorithm is tested on a series of benchmark problems and compared to several state-of-the-art algorithms. The results show that ADNEPSO performed excellently in both convergence and diversity, and is highly competitive in dealing with dynamic problems.
