In this note we consider a linear-fractional programming problem with equality linear constraints. Following Rohn, we define a generalized relative sensitivity coefficient measuring the sensitivity of the optimal value for a linear program and a linear-fractional minimization problem with respect to the perturbations in the problem data.
By using an extension of Rohn's result for the linear programming case, we obtain, via Charnes-Cooper variable change, the relative sensitivity coefficient for the linear-fractional problem. This coefficient involves only the measure of data perturbation, the optimal solution for the initial linear-fractional problem and the optimal solution of the dual problem of linear programming equivalent to the initial fractional problem.
Keywords: linear-fractional programming, generalized relative sensitivity coefficient
