A note on kkt-invexity in nonsmooth continuous-time optimization

Valeriano Antunes de Oliveira, Marko Antonio Rojas—Medar, Adilson José Vieira Brandão


We introduce the notion of KKT-invexity for nonsmooth continuoustime nonlinear optimization problems and prove that this notion is a necessary and sufficient condition for every KKT solution to be a global optimal solution.
