On the existence of efficient points in locally convex spaces

  • Truong Xuan Duc Ha


We study the existence of efficient points in a locally convex space ordered by a convex cone. New conditions are imposed on the ordering cone such that for a set which is closed and bounded in the usual sense or with respect to the cone, the set of efficient points is nonempty and the domination property holds.

Key words

Multiobjective optimization efficient point domination property
