Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents a novel formulation of Multi Agent Collaborative Search for multiobjective optimization. A population of agents combines global exploration heuristics and moves to explore the neighborhood of each agent. In this novel formulation the selection process is based on the Tchebycheff decomposition of the multiobjective optimization problem into single objective optimization problems in combination with the use of the dominance index. The decomposition allows the implementation of Monotonic Basin Hopping steps that improve convergence on single funnel structures. The novel agent-based algorithm is tested on a standard benchmark and on a real space trajectory design problem. Its performance is compared against a number of state-of-the-art multiobjective optimization algorithms.
