Abstract: This thesis seeks to combine two different research topics; Multi-Objective Optimization and Complex Network Analysis. Multi-Objective Optimization aims at finding a set of optimal, non-dominated solutions for optimization problems with multiple (actually, many) conflicting objectives. There is a wide range of applications of multi-objective optimization such as in science, engineering design, network analysis, chemical processes, delivery of products, economics and logistics, medical health and so forth. Since one often faces problems with a larger number of objective functions to be optimized simultaneously, the research topic has shifted to Many-Objective Optimization, which means optimization with (far) more than three objective functions. Complex network analysis is a research field that deals with analyzing large networks. In this research line, there are some active research topics, such as controlling complex networks, finding communities in a network, and measuring the importance of nodes in networks. Due to the bigger amount of data and more difficult problems arising in complex network analysis, research in this field has increased significantly. To this end, more complex networks has given the challenge of finding better approaches in dealing with the problem to yield some adequate result of an analysis.
