They carry in universal a deep admire for the facility of Adorno's aesthetic critique and a priority for the way forward for aesthetic idea in accordance with fresh advancements in aesthetics and its contexts.

Indeed, if f is in Cl (X), then the necessary and sufficient condition Vi (I, c*) = 0 implies that df(x*) = B. (2) The assumption of the variance sequential compactness in Theorem 2 is weaker than the Palais-Smale condition. Indeed, simple examples show that for a continuously differentiable function f E C1, the existence of a sequence {x n }, satisfying condition (1) (I(x n) is bounded and df(x n) --+ B) may not guarantee that VI (I, f(x n )) --+ O. Hence, Palais-Smale condition requires more sequences having convergent subsequence.

A comprehensive exposition of theory and application of branch and bound and related methods in global optimization can be found in Horst and Tuy (1993). A simplified introductory approach is given in Horst, Pardalos and Thoai (1995), and the state-of-the-art in concave minimization techniques along with various applications is excellently expounded in Benson (1995). If, in Problem (1), A is the node-arc incidence matrix of a directed network with m nodes and n arcs, and L:~1 bi = 0, then we have the minimum concave cost capacitated network flow problem (MCCFP) (with arbitrary number of sources and sinks).
