nsga2 {ecr}R Documentation

Implementation of the NSGA-II EMOA algorithm by Deb.

Description

The NSGA-II merges the current population and the generated offspring and reduces it by means of the following procedure: It first applies the non dominated sorting algorithm to obtain the nondominated fronts. Starting with the first front, it fills the new population until the i-th front does not fit. It then applies the secondary crowding distance criterion to select the missing individuals from the i-th front.

Usage

nsga2(fitness.fun, n.objectives = NULL, n.dim = NULL, minimize = NULL,
  lower = NULL, upper = NULL, mu = 100L, lambda = mu,
  mutator = setup(mutPolynomial, eta = 25, p = 0.2, lower = lower, upper =
  upper), recombinator = setup(recSBX, eta = 15, p = 0.7, lower = lower, upper
  = upper), terminators = list(stopOnIters(100L)), ...)

Arguments

fitness.fun

[function]
The fitness function.

n.objectives

[integer(1)]
Number of objectives of obj.fun. Optional if obj.fun is a benchmark function from package smoof.

n.dim

[integer(1)]
Dimension of the decision space.

minimize

[logical(n.objectives)]
Logical vector with ith entry TRUE if the ith objective of fitness.fun shall be minimized. If a single logical is passed, it is assumed to be valid for each objective.

lower

[numeric]
Vector of minimal values for each parameter of the decision space in case of float or permutation encoding. Optional if obj.fun is a benchmark function from package smoof.

upper

[numeric]
Vector of maximal values for each parameter of the decision space in case of float or permutation encoding. Optional if obj.fun is a benchmark function from package smoof.

mu

[integer(1)]
Number of individuals in the population. Default is 100.

lambda

[integer(1)]
Offspring size, i.e., number of individuals generated by variation operators in each iteration. Default is 100.

mutator

[ecr_mutator]
Mutation operator of type ecr_mutator.

recombinator

[ecr_recombinator]
Recombination operator of type ecr_recombinator.

terminators

[list]
List of stopping conditions of type “ecr_terminator”. Default is to stop after 100 iterations.

...

[any]
Further arguments passed down to fitness function.

Value

[ecr_multi_objective_result]

Note

This is a pure R implementation of the NSGA-II algorithm. It hides the regular ecr interface and offers a more R like interface while still being quite adaptable.
