Duality assertions in vector optimization w.r.t. relatively solid convex cones in real linear spaces

We derive duality assertions for vector optimization problems in real linear spaces based on a scalarization using recent results concerning the concept of relative solidness for convex cones (i.e., convex cones with nonempty intrinsic cores). In our paper, we consider an abstract vector optimization problem with generalized inequality constraints and investigate Lagrangian type duality assertions … Read more

Vector Optimization w.r.t. Relatively Solid Convex Cones in Real Linear Spaces

In vector optimization, it is of increasing interest to study problems where the image space (a real linear space) is preordered by a not necessarily solid (and not necessarily pointed) convex cone. It is well-known that there are many examples where the ordering cone of the image space has an empty (topological / algebraic) interior, … Read more

On the intrinsic core of convex cones in real linear spaces

Convex cones play an important role in nonlinear analysis and optimization theory. In particular, specific normal cones and tangent cones are known to be convex cones, and it is a crucial fact that they are useful geometric objects for describing optimality conditions. As important applications (especially, in the fields of optimal control with PDE constraints, … Read more

Characterizations of explicitly quasiconvex vector functions w.r.t. polyhedral cones

The aim of this paper is to present new characterizations of explicitly cone-quasiconvex vector functions with respect to a polyhedral cone of a finite-dimensional Euclidean space. These characterizations are given in terms of classical explicit quasiconvexity of certain real-valued functions, defined by composing the vector-valued function with appropriate scalarization functions, namely the extreme directions of … Read more

Pareto efficient solutions in multi-objective optimization involving forbidden regions

In this paper, the aim is to compute Pareto efficient solutions of multi-objective optimization problems involving forbidden regions. More precisely, we assume that the vector-valued objective function is componentwise generalized-convex and acts between a real topological linear pre-image space and a finite-dimensional image space, while the feasible set is given by the whole pre-image space … Read more

New algorithms for discrete vector optimization based on the Graef-Younes method and cone-monotone sorting functions

The well-known Jahn-Graef-Younes algorithm, proposed by Jahn in 2006, generates all minimal elements of a finite set with respect to an ordering cone. It consists of two Graef-Younes procedures, namely the forward iteration, which eliminates a part of the non-minimal elements, followed by the backward iteration, which is applied to the reduced set generated by … Read more

On generalized-convex constrained multi-objective optimization

In this paper, we consider multi-objective optimization problems involving not necessarily convex constraints and componentwise generalized-convex (e.g., semi-strictly quasi-convex, quasi-convex, or explicitly quasi-convex) vector-valued objective functions that are acting between a real linear topological pre-image space and a finite dimensional image space. For these multi-objective optimization problems, we show that the set of (strictly, weakly) … Read more

A new algorithm for solving planar multiobjective location problems involving the Manhattan norm

This paper is devoted to the study of unconstrained planar multiobjective location problems, where distances between points are defined by means of the Manhattan norm. By identifying all nonessential objectives, we develop an effective algorithm for generating the whole set of efficient solutions. We prove the correctness of this algorithm and present some computational results, … Read more

Relationships between constrained and unconstrained multi-objective optimization and application in location theory

This article deals with constrained multi-objective optimization problems. The main purpose of the article is to investigate relationships between constrained and unconstrained multi-objective optimization problems. Under suitable assumptions (e.g., generalized convexity assumptions) we derive a characterization of the set of (strictly, weakly) efficient solutions of a constrained multi-objective optimization problem using characterizations of the sets … Read more
