Existing studies on dynamic multi-objective optimization mainly focus on dynamic problems with time-dependent objective functions. Few works have put efforts on dynamic problems with a changing number of objectives, or dynamic problems with time-dependent constraints. When problems have time-dependent objective functions, the shape or position of the Pareto-optimal front/set may change over time. However, when dealing with problems with a changing objective number or time-dependent constraints, the challenges are different. Changing number of objectives leads to the expansion or contraction of the dimensions of the Pareto-optimal front/set manifold, while time-dependent constraints may change the shape of feasible regions over time. The existing dynamic handling techniques can hardly handle the changing number of objectives. The state-of-arts in constraints handling techniques are incapable of tackling problems with time-dependent constraints. In this thesis, we present our attempts toward tackling 1) the dynamic multiobjective optimizing problems with a changing number of objectives and 2) multi-objective optimizing problems with time-dependent constraints. Two-archive Evolutionary Algorithms are proposed. Comprehensive experiments are conducted on various benchmark problems for both types of dynamics. Empirical results fully demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed algorithms.
