An adaptive gradient multiobjective particle swarm optimization (AGMOPSO) algorithm, based on a multiobjective gradient (MOG) method, is developed to improve the computation performance. In this AGMOPSO algorithm, the MOG method is devised to update the archive to improve the convergence speed and the local exploitation in the evolutionary process. Attributed to the MOG method, this AGMOPSO algorithm not only has faster convergence speed and higher accuracy but also its solutions have better diversity. Additionally, the convergence is discussed to confirm the prerequisite of any successful application of AGMOPSO. Finally, with regard to the computation performance, the proposed AGMOPSO algorithm is compared with some other multiobjective particle swarm optimization (MOPSO) algorithms and two state-of-the-art multiobjective algorithms. The results demonstrate that the proposed AGMOPSO algorithm can find better spread of solutions and have faster convergence to the true Pareto-optimal front.
