On multiple objective programming problems with set functions. (English) Zbl 0564.90069

The convexity of a subset of a \(\sigma\)-algebra and the convexity of a set function on a convex subset are defined. Related properties are also examined. A Farkas-Minkowski theorem for set functions is then proved. These results are used to characterize properly efficient solutions for multiple objective programming problems with set functions by associated scalar problems.
