Constrained duality via unconstrained duality in generalized geometric programming

  • E. L. Peterson
Contributed Papers


A specialization of unconstrained duality (involving problems without explicit constraints) to constrained duality (involving problems with explicit constraints) provides an efficient mechanism for extending to the latter many important theorems that were previously established for the former.
