A Newton-Like Method for Variable Order Vector Optimization Problems
- 160 Downloads
A Newton approach is proposed for solving variable order smooth constrained vector optimization problems. The concept of strong convexity is presented, and its properties are analyzed. It is thus obtained that the Newton direction is well defined and that the algorithm converges. Moreover, the rate of convergence is obtained under ordering structures satisfying a mild hypothesis.
