A Unified Characterization of Nonlinear Scalarizing Functionals in Optimization

Over the years, several classes of scalarization techniques in optimization have been introduced and employed in deriving separation theorems, optimality conditions and algorithms. In this paper, we study the relationships between some of those classes in the sense of inclusion. We focus on three types of scalarizing functionals (by Hiriart-Urruty, Drummond and Svaiter, Gerstewitz) and … Read more
