The overseas Institute for utilized platforms research (IIASA) in Laxenburg, Austria, has been keen on examine on nondifferentiable optimization on account that 1976. IIASA-based East-West cooperation during this box has been very efficient, resulting in many very important theoretical, algorithmic and utilized effects. Nondifferentiable optimi­ zation has now develop into a well-known and swiftly constructing department of mathematical programming. To proceed this practice, and to check fresh advancements during this box, IIASA held a Workshop on Nondifferentiable Optimization in Sopron (Hungary) in September 1964. The goals of the Workshop have been: 1. to debate the cutting-edge of nondifferentiable optimization (NDO), its origins and motivation; 2. To compare-various algorithms; three. to guage latest mathematical techniques, their functions and strength; four. to increase and deepen business and different purposes of NDO. the next issues have been thought of in separate periods: basic motivation for study in NDO: nondifferentiability in utilized difficulties, nondifferentiable mathematical types. Numerical equipment for fixing nondifferentiable optimization difficulties, numerical experiments, comparisons and software program. Nondifferentiable research: a number of generalizations of the concept that of subdifferen­ tials. business and different functions. This quantity comprises chosen papers provided on the Workshop. it really is divided into 4 sections, in line with the above themes: I. innovations in Nonsmooth research II. Multicriteria Optimization and keep watch over thought III. Algorithms and Optimization tools IV. Stochastic Programming and purposes we want to thank the overseas Institute for utilized platforms research, rather Prof. V. Kaftanov and Prof. A.B. Kurzhanski, for his or her aid in organiz­ ing this meeting.

Structure. The fact that the J objective function is a sum of Pj's each having the above special structure allow for attempting to solve this problem via a dual approach. Let x ~ 0 be a dual variable associated with the linear budget constraint, define the Lagrangian function L by 5 L(v 1 ,v 2 , ... ,v 5 ;x) 5 Lj=lPj(vj) + (B- Lj=l cj vj) x 5 Lj=l (Pj(vj)-cjvjx) + Bx (3) and define the dual function f by f(x) = max[L(v 1 ,v 2 , ... ,v 5 ;x): 0 ;;; v.
