In this paper, a nonlinear scalarization function is introduced for a variable domination structure. It is shown that this function is positively homogeneous, subadditive, and strictly monotone. This nonlinear function is then applied to characterize the weakly nondominated solution of multicriteria decision making problems and the solution of vector variational inequalities.
