Pareto Optimal or Efficient Solutions

  • Po-Lung Yu
Part of the Mathematical Concepts and Methods in Science and Engineering book series (MCSENG, volume 30)


In this chapter we shall concentrate on Pareto preference and its induced nondominated solutions, both on Y and on X.


Efficient Solution Pareto Optimal Solution Decision Space Pareto Solution Nondominated Solution 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
