Abstract : A mathematical programming theory is developed for dual minimax problems of Fenchel type and a related Lagrangian saddle point problem. Questions of existence, characterization and duality are treated. The results extend the known, purely convex case. The proofs use the theory of conjugate saddle functions. (Author)
