Abstract: The paper aims to analyse and compare two different approaches to optimality conditions for multiobjective optimization problems, which involve nonsmooth functions. Both necessary and sufficient first order conditions are presented for the case in which constraint is given just as a set. Finally, the optimality conditions based on these two approaches are compared.
