Summary Various generalizations of convex functions have been introduced in areas such as mathematical programming, economics, management science, engineering, stochastics and applied sciences, for example. Such functions preserve one or more properties of convex functions and give rise to models which are more adaptable to real-world situations than convex models. Similarly, generalizations of monotone maps have been studied recently. A growing literature of this interdisciplinary field has appeared, and a large number of international meetings are entirely devoted or include clusters on generalized convexity and generalized monotonicity. The present book contains a selection of refereed papers presented at the 6th International Symposium on Generalized Convexity/Monotonicity, and aims to review the latest developments in the field.
