# Pareto frontier plot error

I am trying to plot the Pareto frontiers for...

Problem A

Minimize f1(x1,x2)=x2*sin(x1)

Minimize f2(x1,x2)=x1+x2

and

Problem B

Minimize f1(x1,x2)=x1^4+(4*x1*x2)

Minimize f2(x1,x2)=x1+(2*x2^2)

I am not sure when a dot/period is needed in f1 and f2 in Lines 2 and 3 for Problem A and B. I am only getting one point on (0,0) for each problem now.

Problem A:

% Functions

f1 = @(x1, x2) x2.*sin(x1);

f2 = @(x1, x2) x1+x2;

% Grid of values

[x1, x2] = meshgrid(0:0.01:1, 0:0.01:1);

% Calculate the objective functions

F1 = f1(x1, x2);

F2 = f2(x1, x2);

% Weighted average method

weights = 0:0.01:1;

paretoFronts = zeros(length(weights), 2);

for i = 1:length(weights)

l = weights(i);

% Weighted sum

F = l*F1 + (1-l)*F2;

[minF, idx] = min(F(:));

paretoFronts(i, :) = [x1(idx), x2(idx)];

end

figure;

plot(paretoFronts(:,1), paretoFronts(:,2), 'o-');

xlabel('x1');

ylabel('x2');

title('Problem 1ii');

grid on;

Problem B:

% Functions

f1 = @(x1, x2) x1.^4+(4*x1.*x2);

f2 = @(x1, x2) x1+(2*x2.^2);

% Grid of values

[x1, x2] = meshgrid(0:0.01:1, 0:0.01:1);

% Calculate the objective functions

F1 = f1(x1, x2);

F2 = f2(x1, x2);

% Weighted average method

weights = -1:0.01:1;

paretoFronts = zeros(length(weights), 2);

for i = 1:length(weights)

l = weights(i);

% Weighted sum

F = l*F1 + (1-l)*F2;

[minF, idx] = min(F(:));

paretoFronts(i, :) = [x1(idx), x2(idx)];

end

figure;

plot(paretoFronts(:,1), paretoFronts(:,2), 'o-');

xlabel('x1');

ylabel('x2');

title('Problem 1ii');

grid on;
