Global optimization of fractional programs. (English) Zbl 0748.90068
Dinkelbach’s classical parametric algorithm in fractional programming is modified. A sequence of lower and upper bounds of the optimal value of the ratio is constructed and shown to be superlinearly convergent to the optimal value. Additional results are obtained for linear and quadratic fractional programs.
