On locally Lipschitz vector-valued invex functions

  • N.D. Yen (a1) and P.H. Sach (a1)

The four types of invexity for locally Lipschitz vector-valued functions recently introduced by T. W. Reiland are studied in more detail. It is shown that the class of restricted K-invex in the limit functions is too large to obtain desired optimisation theorems and the other three classes are contained in the class of functions which are invex 0 in the sense of our previous joint paper with B. D. Craven and T. D. Phuong. We also prove that the extended image of a locally Lipschitz vector-valued invex function is pseudoconvex in the sense of J. Borwein at each of its points.
