In this paper, we consider convergence properties of a class of penalization methods for a general vector optimization problem with cone constraints in infinite dimensional spaces. Under certain assumptions, we show that any efficient point of the cone constrained vector optimization problem can be approached by a sequence of efficient points of the penalty problems. We also show, on the other hand, that any limit point of a sequence of approximate efficient solutions to the penalty problems is a weekly efficient solution of the original cone constrained vector optimization problem. Finally, when the constrained space is of finite dimension, we show that any limit point of a sequence of stationary points of the penalty problems is a KKT stationary point of the original cone constrained vector optimization problem if Mangasarian-Fromovitz constraint qualification holds at the limit point. 2006.
