Robust analysis and global optimization

  • Quan Zheng


In this paper, the properties of robust sets and robust functions are studied. Also, we study minimization of a robust function over a robust set and extend the optimality conditions of [3] and the algorithm of [4,5] to our case. The algorithm is shown to be effective.
