Characterization of properly optimal elements with variable ordering structures

In vector optimization with a variable ordering structure the partial ordering defined by a convex cone is replaced by a whole family of convex cones, one associated with each element of the space. In recent publications it was started to develop a comprehensive theory for these vector optimization problems. Thereby also notions of proper efficiency … Read more

Properly optimal elements in vector optimization with variable ordering structures

In this paper, proper optimality concepts in vector optimization with variable ordering structures are introduced for the first time and characterization results via scalarizations are given. New type of scalarizing functionals are presented and their properties are discussed. The scalarization approach suggested in the paper does not require convexity and boundedness conditions.

A Generalization of a Theorem of Arrow, Barankin and Blackwell to a Nonconvex Case

The paper presents a generalization of a known density theorem of Arrow, Barankin, and Blackwell for properly efficient points defined as support points of sets with respect to monotonically increasing sublinear functions. This result is shown to hold for nonconvex sets of a reflexive Banach space partially ordered by a Bishop–Phelps cone. Citation Department of … Read more
