Hanson and Mond have given sets of necessary and sufficient conditions for optimality and duality in constrained optimization by introducing classes of generalized convex functions, called type I and type II functions. Recently, Bector defined univex functions, a new class of functions that unifies several concepts of generalized convexity. In this paper, optimality and duality results for several mathematical programs are obtained combining the concepts of type I and univex functions. Examples of functions satisfying these conditions are given.
