In the Multi-Objective Grey Wolf Optimizer (MOGWO), a fixed-sized external archive is integrated to the GWO for saving and retrieving the Pareto optimal solutions. This archive has been employed to define the social hierarchy and simulate the hunting behavior of grey wolves in multi-objective search spaces.

hello sir ! Thanks for your code ,I have learnt a lot from the source code you display on your personal website.and I have a question,when you introduced the pareto theroy in your paper about Multi-Objective Grey Wolf Optimizer ,you gave the the definition of the pareto optimization about maximization problem. according your MOGWO code,you solve the minimization problem。Am I right ?

Thanks a lot. I am glad to hear that you have found the concent of my website helpful. I am working on several online courses and will be uploading the codes here in Mathworks website. That includes TSP problems as well, so stay tuned.

Dear Sir,
I have learnt a lot from the source code you display on your personal website.I have studied DA,MFO,WOA and all of that and you are a definitely genius.May you upload some files concerning sloving discrete problems such as Travelling Sales Problem,Job Shop Problem,route planning of AGV?I get great interest in this discret field,espicially using the algorithm you created to slove these problems.Thanks a lot.
