  • Weighted Optimization Framework (WOF): Matlab Version (Last Update: 12.10.2018)

Paper 1: Heiner Zille, Hisao Ishibuchi, Sanaz Mostaghim and Yusuke Nojima, A Framework for Large-scale Multi-objective Optimization based on Problem Transformation, IEEE Transactions on Evolutionary Computation, Vol. 22, Issue 2, pp. 260-275, April 2018  --> Link to IEEE Xplore Digital Library

Paper 2: Heiner Zille and Sanaz Mostaghim, Comparison Study of Large-scale Optimisation Techniques on the LSMOP Benchmark Functions, IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (SSCI), IEEE, Honolulu, Hawaii, November 2017 --> Link to IEEE Xplore Digital Library

Note: This is the latest version of WOF-SMPSO written in Matlab for the PlatEMO framework version 1.5. It implements several improvements compared to the original publication. It also includes several transformation functions, grouping mechanisms and other parameters to choose. If you use the PlatEmo framework from version 2.0, the WOF algorithm is already included in the framework.
