To overcome the somewhat artificial difficulties in classical optimization theory concerning the existence and stability of minimizers, a new setting of constrained optimization problems (called problems with tolerance) is proposed using given proximity structures to define the neighbourhoods of sets. The infimum and the so-called minimizing filter are then defined by means of level sets created by these neighbourhoods, which also reflects the engineering approach to constrained optimization problems....

It is shown that the construct of supertopological spaces and continuous maps is topological.
