Sufficiency and duality for nonsmooth multiobjective programming problems involving generalized univex functions

  • Xianjun LongEmail author


In this paper, nonsmooth univex, nonsmooth quasiunivex, and nonsmooth pseudounivex functions are introduced. By utilizing these new concepts, sufficient optimality conditions for a weakly efficient solution of the nonsmooth multiobjective programming problem are established. Weak and strong duality theorems are also derived for Mond-Weir type multiobjective dual programs.

Key words
