Unified duality for vector optimization problem over cones involving support functions

  • Surjeet Kaur Suneja (a1) and Pooja Louhan (a2)


In this paper we give necessary and sufficient optimality conditions for a vector optimization problem over cones involving support functions in objective as well as constraints, using cone-convex and other related functions. We also associate a unified dual to the primal problem and establish weak, strong and converse duality results. A number of previously studied problems appear as special cases.
