In this chapter we propose a new evolutionary elitist approach combining a non-standard solution representation and an evolutionary optimization technique. The proposed method permits detection of continuous decision regions. In our approach an individual (a solution) is either a closed interval or a point. The individuals in the final population give a realistic representation of the Pareto-optimal set. Each solution in this population corresponds to a decision region of the Pareto-optimal set. The proposed technique is an elitist one. It uses a unique population. The current population contains non-dominated solutions already computed.
