Multi-Objective Optimization as a Tool for Material Design
In this chapter, we explain the concept of Pareto optimality and Pareto dominance and use these concepts in solving multi-objective (MO) optimization problems. Then, we discuss a few different MO optimization methods and show how MO optimization can be used as a tool for designing new materials. A simple Pareto-based MO optimization method is examined on a few practical case studies to assess how efficient is this method in optimizing double-objective problems.
