We introduce new invexity-type properties for differentiable functions, generalizing (F, ρ)-convexity. Optimality conditions for nonlinear programming problems are established under such assumptions, extending previously known results. Wolfe and Mond-Weir duals are also considered, and we obtain direct and converse duality theorems.
