When gi = min {g,(d): d E ~}, then the goal g is also called an utopia, or ideal point. 6, the method again terminates at an EP optimal decision. 21 Fundamentals of Multicriteria Optimization An exception thereto is given by the minimization of the p = oo norm G(y) = max IYi- ~~~~N g,l subject to y E Y, which does not necessarily yield an EP optimum. It can be asserted, however, that at least one of the solutions is EP optimal. Thus, if the minimum is unique, it is EP optimal. Goal programming is based on similar premises.
