The lack of standard convexity in nonconvex optimization provides an
interesting challenge in mathematics. Several instances from Calculus of
Variations, Optimal control to mathematical (multiobjective) programming,
show that convexity must be present in one way or in another.
My primary interest at present is to discover the same property
in vector optimization, variational inequality problems.
