Metrical Pareto Efficiency and Monotone EVP

  • Mihai TuriniciEmail author
Part of the Springer Optimization and Its Applications book series (SOIA, volume 113)


A uniform version is established for normed Pareto efficient point results in Isac [Comb. Global Optim., pp. 133–144, World Sci. Publ., 2002]. Its basic tool is the monotone variant of Ekeland’s variational principle obtained in Turinici [An. Şt. UAIC Iaşi, 36 (1990), 329–352].
