R package containing a component-based, modular implementation of the Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithm with Decomposition (MOEA/D) framework.

The MOEA/D framework is seen as a combination of specific design decisions regarding several independent modules:

  • Decomposition strategy;
  • Aggregation function;
  • Objective scaling strategy;
  • Neighborhood assignment strategy;
  • Variation Stack;
  • Update strategy;
  • Constraint handling method;
  • Termination criteria.

This package provides several options for each module, as explained in the documentation of its main function, MOEADr::moead(). The input structure of this function is also explained in its documentation. More details on the component-based approach behind the MOEADr package are available in our paper, The MOEADr Package - A Component-Based Framework for Multiobjective Evolutionary Algorithms Based on Decomposition, available on the ArXiv:
