Many MOEA development efforts acknowledge various facets of underlying MOEA theory, but make limited contributions when simply citing relevant issues raised by others. Some authors, however, exhibit significant theoretical detail. Their work provides basic MOEA models and associated theories. Table 5.1 lists contemporary efforts reflecting MOEA theory development. In essence, an MOEA is searching for optimal elements in a partially ordered set or in the Pareto optimal set. Thus, the concept of convergence to P true and PF true is integral to the MOEA search process.
