# Sufficiency and Duality for Interval-Valued Optimization Problems with Vanishing Constraints Using Weak Constraint Qualifications

## Main Article Content

### Abstract

In this paper, we are concerned with one of the difficult class of optimization problems called the interval-valued optimization problem with vanishing constraints. Sufficient optimality conditions for a LU optimal solution are derived under generalized convexity assumptions. Moreover, appropriate duality results are discussed for a Mond-Weir type dual problem. In addition, numerical examples are given to support the sufficient optimality conditions and weak duality theorem.
