Multi-Objective Optimization Repository (MOrepo)

This repository is a response to the needs of researchers from the MCDM society to access multi-objective (MO) optimization instances. The repository contains instances, results, generators etc. for different MO problems and is continuously updated. The repository can be used as a test set for testing new algorithms, validating existing results and for reproducibility. All researchers within MO optimization are welcome to contribute.

The repository consists of a main repository MOrepo at GitHub and a set of sub-repositories, one for each contribution. Sub-repositories are named MOrepo-<name> where name normally is the surname of the first author and year of the study. All repositories are located within the MCDMSociety organization at GitHub.

The main repository contains documentation about how to use and contribute to MOrepo. Moreover, a set of tools are given in the R package MOrepoTools which can be used to retrieve info about test instance groups, results and problem classes.

Maintainers of MOrepo are Lars Relund Nielsen larsrn@econ.au.dk and Sune Gadegaard sgadegaard@econ.au.dk.

Current maintainers of sub-repositories are Sune Lauth Gadegaard sgadegaard@econ.au.dk, Lars Relund junk@relund.dk, Thomas Stidsen thst@dtu.dk and Nathan Adelgren nadelgren@edinboro.edu.

Current contributors to the repository are S.L. Gadegaard, A. Klose, L.R. Nielsen, C.R. Pedersen, K.A. Andersen, D. Tuyttens, J. Teghem, Ph. Fortemps, K. Van Nieuwenhuyze, M.P. Hansen, N. Adelgren and A. Gupte.

Usage

Instances can be downloaded in different ways depending on usage:

  • If you want a whole sub-repository, download it as a zip file or clone it on GitHub.
  • Browse to a single instance and download it using the raw format at GitHub.
  • Use the R package MOrepoTools to download instances.

We recommend the last option and illustrate how it works. You don’t need much knowledge about R to use the package. But of course it is preferable. You need R and preferable RStudio installed on your computer. First you have to install the MOrepoTools package. From the R command line write:

library(devtools)  # if the package is missing see ?install.package 
install_github("MCDMSociety/MOrepo/misc/R/MOrepoTools")

To get an overview over the current problem classes run:

library(MOrepoTools)
getProblemClasses()  # current problem classes in MOrepo
## [1] "Facility Location"  "Assignment"         "Traveling Salesman"
## [4] "MILP"
getInstanceInfo(class = "Assignment")  # info about instances for the assignment problem

Now download the Tuyttens00 contribution as a zip file using

getContributionAsZip("Tuyttens00")
## Download MOrepo-Tuyttens00.zip ... finished.

Or download selected instances

getInstance(name="Tuyttens.*n10")
## Download Tuyttens00_AP_n10.raw ...finished
## Download Tuyttens00_AP_n100.raw ...finished
## [1] "Tuyttens00_AP_n10.raw"  "Tuyttens00_AP_n100.raw"

How to contribute

All researchers are welcome to contribute to MOrepo. The repository mainly contains MO test instances and results from various sources. However, also generators, format converters, algorithms etc. related to MO optimization are welcome. Have a look at the documentation file contribute.md which describes different ways to do it.
