Executive Summary

This chapter provides an insight on the use of Tabu search for the resolution of MultiObjective (MO) optimization problems. Many real-world engineering problems are not defined with a single objective. Their complexity and the user demands lead to the use of multiple performance criteria that have to be optimized concurrently. For instance, when optimizing the shape of aerodynamic systems (Jaeggi et al., 2008) or when looking for the optimal placement of base stations in cellular networks (Reininger & Caminada, 2001), several optimization functions are necessary to account for the different performance metrics or services rendered by the system. In contrast to mono-objective optimization problems, there is rarely a unique solution that optimizes all the criteria.
