Abstract: In this paper, we apply the quadratic penalization technique to derive strong Lagrangian duality property for an inequality constrained invex program. Our results extend and improve the corresponding results in the literature.

Keywords: Penalty function, Lagrangian duality,coercivity of a function, level-boundedness of a function, invex function
