A note on the continuity of the solution set of special dual optimization problems

Part of the Mathematical Programming Studies book series (MATHPROGRAMM, volume 10)


In this paper dual programs of convex optimization problems having a parametric objective function and a fixed linear feasible set are studied. By using some properties of the primal problem the continuity of the dual optimal solution set is proved.

Two examples show the necessity of the suppositions.
