This submission includes the source codes of the multi-objective version of the recently proposed Ant Lion Optimizer (ALO) called Multi-Objective Ant Lion Optimizer (MOALO). A repository is first employed to store non-dominated Pareto optimal solutions obtained so far. Solutions are then chosen from this repository using a roulette wheel mechanism based on the coverage of solutions as antlions to guide ants towards promising regions of multi-objective search spaces.
The main paper is:
S. Mirjalili, P. Jangir, and S. Saremi, Multi-objective ant lion optimizer: a multi-objective optimization algorithm for solving engineering problems." Applied Intelligence, (2016): 1-17, DOI:

The single-objective ALO source codes can be found here:
