ABSTRACT In this paper several kinds of (ρ,θ)-η-invariant-monotone functions and generalized (ρ,θ)-η-invariant-monotone functions are considered. For a given Frechet differentiable function f,∇f (gradient of f), (ρ,θ)-η-invariant-monotonicity of ∇f is related to (ρ,θ)-η-invexity of f. It is also shown that (ρ,θ)-η-invariant-monotonicity and generalized (ρ,θ)-η-invariant-monotonicity are proper generalizations of invariant-monotonicity and generalized invariant-monotonicity.

    ABSTRACT: A class of functions, called pre-invex, is defined. These functions are more general than convex functions and when differentiable are invex. Optimality conditions and duality theorems are given for both scalar-valued and vector-valued programs involving pre-invex functions.

    ABSTRACT: Known as well as new types of monotone and generalized monotone maps are considered. For gradient maps, these generalized monotonicity properties can be related to generalized convexity properties of the underlying function. In this way, pure first-order characterizations of various types of generalized convex functions are obtained.

    ABSTRACT: Generalized monotonocity of bifunctions or multifunctions is a rather new concept in optimization and nonsmooth analysis. It is shown in the present paper how quasiconvexity, pseudoconvexity, and strict pseudoconvexity of lower semicontinuous functions can be characterized via the quasimonotonicity, pseudomonotonicity, and strict pseudomonotonicity of different types of generalized derivatives, including the Dini, Dini-Hadamard, Clarke, and Rockafellar derivatives as well.
