Abstract : The conjugate transform is used to generalize, symmetrize, and further study Duffin's original formulation of duality for unconstrained geometric programming. This study provides new economic interpretations for the geometric dual problem; and it yields new theorems concerning the existence, uniqueness, and characterization of optimal solutions. The economic interpretations come from a new closed-form solution to a related economically interesting class of convex programming problems. (Author)
