Abstract

In this paper, we report on our investigation of factors affecting the performance of various parallelization paradigms for multiobjective evolutionary algorithms. Different parallelization paradigms emphasize separate development of sub-populations versus communication and coordination between sub-populations to greater or lesser degrees. We hypothesized that the characteristics of a particular problem will favour some paradigms over others. We tested this hypothesis by creating variations on test problems with different characteristics, and testing the performance of different paradigms in a cluster environment.
