Part of the Nonconvex Optimization and Its Applications book series (NOIA, volume 79)


In this paper Generalized Complementarity Problems are expressed in terms of suitable optimization problems and some optimality conditions are given. The infinite dimensional Lagrangean and Duality Theories play an important role in order to achieve the main result.

Key words

Generalized Complementarity Problem Lagrangean Function Dual Problem Quasirelative interior saddle point
