Generalized preinvex functions and their properties
We introduce some new classes of preinvex and invex functions, which are called -preinvex and -invex functions. We study some properties of these classes of -preinvex (-invex) functions. In particular, we establish the equivalence among the -preinvex functions, -invex functions, and -monotonicity of their differential under some suitable conditions.
