Given a nondominated point set of size and a suitable reference point , the Hypervolume Subset Selection Problem (HSSP) consists of finding a subset of size that maximizes the hypervolume indicator. It arises in connection with multiobjective selection and archiving strategies, as well as Pareto-front approximation postprocessing for visualization and/or interaction with a decision maker. Efficient algorithms to solve the HSSP are available only for the 2-dimensional case, achieving a time complexity of . In contrast, the best upper bound available for is . Since the hypervolume indicator is a monotone submodular function, the HSSP can be approximated to a factor of using a greedy strategy. In this article, greedy -time algorithms for the HSSP in 2 and 3 dimensions are proposed, matching the complexity of current exact algorithms for the 2-dimensional case, and considerably improving upon recent complexity results for this approximation problem.

The hypervolume subset selection problem consists of finding a subset, with a given cardinality k , of a set of nondominated points that maximizes the hypervolume indicator. This problem arises in selection procedures of evolutionary algorithms for multiobjective optimization, for which practically efficient algorithms are required. In this article, two new formulations are provided for the two-dimensional variant of this problem. The first is a (linear) integer programming formulation that can be solved by solving its linear programming relaxation. The second formulation is a k -link shortest path formulation on a special digraph with the Monge property that can be solved by dynamic programming in time. This improves upon the result of in Bader ( 2009 ), and slightly improves upon the result of in Bringmann et al. ( 2014b ), which was developed independently from this work using different techniques. Numerical results are shown for several values of n and k .

The application of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) in multiobjective optimization is currently receiving growing interest from researchers with various backgrounds. Most research in this area has understandably concentrated on the selection stage of EAs, due to the need to integrate vectorial performance measures with the inherently scalar way in which EAs reward individual performance, that is, number of offspring. In this review, current multiobjective evolutionary approaches are discussed, ranging from the conventional analytical aggregation of the different objectives into a single function to a number of population-based approaches and the more recent ranking schemes based on the definition of Pareto optimality. The sensitivity of different methods to objective scaling and/or possible concavities in the trade-off surface is considered, and related to the (static) fitness landscapes such methods induce on the search space. From the discussion, directions for future research in multiobjective fitness assignment and search strategies are identified, including the incorporation of decision making in the selection procedure, fitness sharing, and adaptive representations.
