Stability of Generalized Convexity and Monotonicity
It was shown that well-known kinds of generalized convex functions (generalized monotone maps, respectively) are often not stable with respect to the property they have to keep during the generalization. Then the so-called s-quasiconvex functions, s-quasimonotone maps and strictly s-quasiconvex functions were introduced in Optimization, vol.38, vol.55 and Journal of Inequalities in Pure and Applied Mathematics, vol.127, respectively. In this paper, some stability properties of such functions and a use of s-quasimonotonicity in an economics model are presented. Furthermore, an algorithm for finding the stability index for strict s-quasiconvexity of a given continuously twice differentiable function on ℝ is presented.
