Description

Identify nondominated points with is_nondominated and remove dominated ones with filter_dominated.

pareto_rank() ranks points according to Pareto-optimality, which is also called nondominated sorting \citepDeb02nsga2.

is_nondominated(data, maximise = FALSE, keep_weakly = FALSE)

filter_dominated(data, maximise = FALSE, keep_weakly = FALSE)

pareto_rank(data, maximise = FALSE)

Arguments

data

(matrix | data.frame)
Matrix or data frame of numerical values, where each row gives the coordinates of a point.

maximise

(logical() | logical(1))
Whether the objectives must be maximised instead of minimised. Either a single logical value that applies to all objectives or a vector of logical values, with one value per objective.

keep_weakly

If FALSE, return FALSE for any duplicates of nondominated points.

Details

pareto_rank() is meant to be used like rank(), but it assigns ranks according to Pareto dominance. Duplicated points are kept on the same front. When ncol(data) == 2, the code uses the O(n \log n) algorithm by \citetJen03.

Value

is_nondominated returns a logical vector of the same length as the number of rows of data, where TRUE means that the point is not dominated by any other point.

filter_dominated returns a matrix or data.frame with only mutually nondominated points.

pareto_rank() returns an integer vector of the same length as the number of rows of data, where each value gives the rank of each point.
