-convexity and b
-invexity have similar structures in their definitions, there are some possibilities to treat these three class of mappings uniformly. For this purpose, the definitions of the
-convex sets and the b
-convex mappings are introduced. The properties concerning operations that preserve the
-convexity of the proposed mappings are derived. The unconstrained and inequality constrained b
-convex programming are considered, where the sufficient conditions of optimality are developed and the uniqueness of the solution to the b
-convex programming are investigated. Furthermore, the sufficient optimality conditions and the Fritz–John necessary optimality criteria for nonlinear multi-objective b
-convex programming are established. The Wolfe-type symmetric duality theorems under the b
-convexity, including weak and strong symmetric duality theorems, are also presented. Finally, we construct two examples in detail to show how the obtained results can be used in b
