Stability Results for Efficient Solutions of Vector Optimization Problems

  • S. W. Xiang
  • W. S. Yin


Using the additive weight method of vector optimization problems and the method of essential solutions, we study some continuity properties of the mapping which associates the set of efficient solutions S(f) to the objective function f. To understand such properties, the key point is to consider the stability of additive weight solutions and the relationship between efficient solutions and additive weight solutions.
