In MOPSO (multiobjective particle swarm optimization), to maintain or increase the diversity of the swarm and help an algorithm to jump out of the local optimal solution, PAM (Partitioning Around Medoid) clustering algorithm and uniform design are respectively introduced to maintain the diversity of Pareto optimal solutions and the uniformity of the selected Pareto optimal solutions. In this paper, a novel algorithm, the multiobjective particle swarm optimization based on PAM and uniform design, is proposed. The differences between the proposed algorithm and the others lie in that PAM and uniform design are firstly introduced to MOPSO. The experimental results performing on several test problems illustrate that the proposed algorithm is efficient.
