The well-posedness concept introduced in Ref. 1 for global optimization problems with a unique solution is generalized here to problems with many minimizers, under the name of extended well-posedness. It is shown that this new property can be characterized by metric criteria, which parallel to some extent those known about generalized Tikhonov well-posedness.
