The present paper deals with the properties of geodesic η-preinvex functions and their relationships with η-invex functions and strictly geodesic η-preinvex functions. The geodesic η-pre-pseudo-invex and geodesic η-pre-quasi-invex functions on the geodesic invex set are introduced and some of their properties are discussed.
