Performance indicators in multiobjective optimization

In recent years, the development of new algorithms for multiobjective optimization has considerably grown. A large number of performance indicators has been introduced to measure the quality of Pareto front approximations produced by these algorithms. In this work, we propose a review of a total of 63 performance indicators partitioned into four groups according to their properties: cardinality, convergence, distribution and spread. Applications of these indicators are presented as well.
