Workshop on Vector Variational Inequalities and Related Topics


Date:                27 January 2007


Venue:              The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong


Aims:                The multicriteria methodology has been widely used in management science, engineering design etc.  For example, the portfolio selection problem is to minimize the risk and to maximize the expected return and the traffic equilibrium problem is to minimize the cost and to minimize the travel time.  Vector variational inequality is a generalization of variational inequality and is a new mathematics model for the situation where the equilibrium, which is not a minimum of any functional, is sought and the multicriteria consideration is important.  This workshop aims to bring together researchers in this region to exchange their latest research development on vector variational inequalities and related topics.
