Many decisions need to be made based on imprecise or incomplete initial information. In such cases, decision makers are generally more interested in sets of the most promising solutions rather than the best single solution. Therefore, in contrast to conventional optimisation approaches that aim to find exact optimal points, we aim to find optimal ranges with variable satisfaction degrees. This paper presents a fuzzy-set-based approach for the representation and optimisation of practical problems with imprecise property where evolutionary computation is used for obtaining fuzzy solutions through guided searching. The representation of fuzzy sets, its initialisation, crossover, mutation, and validation, the ranking approach for fuzzy objective values, and the propagation method of fuzzy information are discussed. Several examples for illustrating the fuzzy evolutionary optimisation approach are provided.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
