Scalarization method is an important tool in the study of vector optimization as corresponding solutions of vector optimization problems can be found by solving scalar optimization problems. In this paper we introduce a nonlinear scalarization function for a variable domination structure. Several important properties, such as subadditiveness and continuity, of this nonlinear scalarization function are established. This nonlinear scalarization function is applied to study the existence of solutions for generalized quasi-vector equilibrium problems.
