A class of convexification and concavification methods are proposed for solving some classes of non-monotone optimization problems. It is shown that some classes of non-monotone optimization problems can be converted into better structured optimization problems, such as, concave minimization problems, reverse convex programming problems, and canonical D.C. programming problems by the proposed convexification and concavification methods. The equivalence between the original problem and the converted better structured optimization problem is established.
