Sensitivity analysis in posynomial geometric programming

  • J. Kyparisis
Contributed Papers


Sensitivity analysis results for general parametric posynomial geometric programs are obtained by utilizing recent results from nonlinear programming. Duality theory of geometric programming is exploited to relate the sensitivity results derived for primal and dual geometric programs. The computational aspects of sensitivity calculations are also considered.
