Abstract : The concepts of domination structures and nondominated solutions are important in tackling multicriteria decision problems. The authors relax Yu's requirement that the domination structure at each point of the criteria space be a convex cone and give results concerning the set of nondominated solutions for the case where the domination structure at each point is a convex set. A practical necessity for such a generalization is discussed. The authors also present conditions under which a locally nondominated solution is also a globally nondominated solution. (Author)
