Multiple-objective optimisation (MOO) is the application of optimization theory to more than one goal at a time. Unfortunately, that's about all I know about it so far. Being a self described information activist, I do have a keen interest in the subject, as I think the movement has much use for MOO. My preliminary survey of the MOO literature suggests that I should study (at least!) the following concepts:

- <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computational_geometry">computational geometry</a>
- <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Efficient_frontier">efficient frontier</a> analysis
- <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantile_kriging">quantile</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kriging">kriging</a>

It is hoped of course that there is
a useful subset of the body of MOO knowledge
that is either undiscovered or nonproprietary.
Countless open content and putatively fair use activities
have been squashed by the ubiquitous **cease and desist order**.
