Abstract—One of the key problems in multi-agent coalition formation is to optimally assign and schedule resources. An improved multi-objective evolutionary Algorithm (IMOEA) is proposed to solve this problem. Compared with several well-known algorithms such as NSGA, MOEA, experimental results show the algorithm is very suitable for coalition formation problem.

Index Terms—Multi-agent; coalition formation; multiobjective optimization; evolutionary algorithm.
