On Second-Order Optimality Conditions for Vector Optimization: Addendum


In this note we improve upon one of the main results of Maciel et al. (J. Optim. Theory Appl., 149:332–351, 2011) and complete the second-order optimality conditions for vector optimization with a feasible neighborhood second-order sufficiency theorem.
