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

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

Pointed Closed Convex Sets are the Intersection of All Rational Supporting Closed Halfspaces

We prove that every pointed closed convex set in $\mathbb{R}^n$ is the intersection of all the rational closed halfspaces that contain it. This generalizes a previous result by the authors for compact convex sets. Citation arXiv:1802.03296.

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
