Some Characteristic Quantities Associated with Homogeneous-Type and-Type Functions

Abstract

Several characteristic quantities associated with homogeneous-type and-type functions are introduced and studied in this paper. Further, the concepts of-property and-property for a couple of functions are introduced and some quantities for a pair of homogeneous functions having-property and-property are obtained, respectively. As an application, a bound for the solution of the homogeneous complementarity problem with a-type function is derived.
