7. An MAGDM Approach Combining Numerical Values with Uncertain Linguistic Information and Its Application in Evaluation of R&D Projects Xin-Bao Liu , Feng Pei , Jian-Bo Yang , Shan-Lin Yang

Xin-bao Liu, Shan-lin Yang, Feng Pei, Jiab-bo Yang
Pages: 575 - 589
In multi-attribute group decision making (MAGDM) problems, decision attributes of alternatives are often considered as with quantitative and qualitative information. Therefore decision making problems may include preference information in different formats. In this paper, a multi-attribute group decision...

8. A scalable coevolutionary multi-objective particle swarm optimizer

Xiangwei Zheng, Hong Liu
Pages: 590 - 600
Multi-Objective Particle Swarm Optimizers (MOPSOs) are easily trapped in local optima, cost more function evaluations and suffer from the curse of dimensionality. A scalable cooperative coevolution and ?-dominance based MOPSO (CEPSO) is proposed to address these issues. In CEPSO, Multi-objective Optimization...
