Title: Elements of non-convex optimization.

Abstract:  We consider a general optimization problem with functions, represented as a difference of two convex functions. In order to attack that problem we first concentrate on two partial cases: d.c. minimization and d.c. constraint problems - and explain local search methods and global search procedure for these two problems. Finally we give an overview of application problems investigated by the developed approach.
