  • Systems and Methods for Hierarchical Multi-Objective Optimization (ANL-IN-19-010)

This invention comprises a solution to the problem of simultaneous optimization of multiple objectives by creating a hierarchy of objectives with passing criteria” which allows an optimization algorithm to understand the relative importance of the objectives and also provides a pathway for it to tackle the list of objectives in a systematic baby-stepping manner that is based on well defined target values rather than arbitrary weights.
