    The use of evolutionary algorithms (EAs) to solve problems with multiple objectives (known as Vector Optimization Problems (VOPs)) has attracted much attention recently. Being population based approaches, EAs offer a means to find a group of pareto-optimal solutions in a single run. Differential Evolution (DE) is an EA that was developed to handle optimization problems over continuous domains. The objective of this paper is to introduce a novel Pareto Differential Evolution (PDE) algorithm to solve VOPs. The solutions provided by the proposed algorithm for five standard test problems, is competitive to nine known evolutionary multiobjective algorithms for solving VOPs.
