By using Clarke’s generalized gradients we consider a nonsmooth vector optimization problem with cone constraints and introduce some generalized cone-invex functions called K-α-generalized invex, K-α-nonsmooth invex, and other related functions. Several sufficient optimality conditions and Mond-Weir type weak and converse duality results are obtained for this problem under the assumptions of the generalized cone invexity. The results presented in this paper generalize and extend the previously known results in this area.
