On duality concepts in fractional programming. I. (English) Zbl 0817.90122

Summary: We describe an approach to duality in fractional programming on the basis of another kind of conjugate functions. The connections to some duality concepts (the Lagrange-duality and duality concepts of Craven and Schaible) are investigated and some new proofs of strong duality theorems are given.
