This paper presents a set of complete solutions and optimality conditions for a nonconvex quadratic-exponential optimization problem. By using the canonical duality theory developed by the first author, the nonconvex primal problem in n-dimensional space can be converted into an one-dimensional canonical dual problem with zero duality gap, which can be solved easily to obtain all dual solutions. Each dual solution leads to a primal solution. Both global and local extremality conditions of these primal solutions can be identified by the triality theory associated with the canonical duality theory. Several examples are illustrated.
- Duality theory
- Global optimization
- Nonconvex programming
- Nonlinear algebraic equation
- Quadratic-exponential function
