Performance assessment of stochastic multiobjective optimizers

At the EMO2005 international conference in Mexico, I presented a tutorial on the performance assessment of multiobjective optimizers (written with Carlos Fonseca, Lothar Thiele and Eckart Zitzler). This tutorial was written up as a technical report, which has since been frequently cited in the EMO field. Software relating to the methods presented in the tutorial is also available, and has been used widely.
