In this section, within the Metrical Phonology and Optimality Theory frameworks, Kurdish data will be analyzed.
Verma and Zalmai [11] introduced the notion of the generalized (ph, , p, th, m)-invexities, and further applied to establish a class of second order parametric necessary optimality conditions as well as sufficient optimality conditions for a discrete minmax fractional programming problem using the general frameworks for the (ph, , p, th, m)-invexities.

In order to develop the necessary conditions of optimality we need the so-called variational equation.
Due to the focus on the allocation of the outputs of the law-making process, Pareto optimality does not allow for comparisons among alternative law-making processes, nor does it allow for a comparative assessment of how such processes differentially affect outcome efficiency.
Applying the RK4 scheme to the resulting optimality system we obtain the following system of equations.
Also we have established the necessary and sufficient optimality condition and used a parameterization technique to establish duality results under generalized [rho]-univexity assumption.
The peculiarity of this approach is that optimality depends on an exogenous characteristic of the economy, i.
While POMDPs offer principled optimality in near-real contexts, their usefulness is inhibited by the high complexity of solving them.
Finally, (1k) represents the logical restrictions on the variables, where the y-variables would automatically turn out to be binary-valued at optimality, even when permitted to be continuous variables on the interval [0, 1].
Using new approaches, including considering optimality principles, will lead to advances in medicinal chemistry as well as creating more and healthier food.
