Clustering-based Leaders Selection (CLS) is a novel leaders selection technique in multi-objective evolutionary algorithms. Clustering is applied on both the objective and solution spaces whereby each individual is assigned to two clusters; one in the objective space and the other in the solution space. Mapping between clusters in both spaces is then applied to recognize regions with potentially better solutions. A leaders archive is used where a representative of each cluster in the objective and solution spaces is stored. The results of applying CLS integrated with NSGAII on seven standard multi-objective problems, show that clustering based leaders selection NSGAII (NSGAII/C) is highly competitive comparing with the original algorithm.
