Model-based Genetic Algorithms (MBGAs) represent a class of GAs which use probabilistic models to enable the development of more effective search operators. Although these algorithms show significant results in single-objective optimization, their adaptation to the multiobjective context, in general, have not shown the same success. In this project we investigate the main difficulties faced by those algorithms when solving multiobjective problems and propose ways to circumvent them.
