A steepest ascent family of algorithms suitable for the direct solution of continuous variable unconstrained nonconical multiple objective programming problems is introduced. Nonconical multiple objective problems, unlike standard (conical) vector optimization problems, cannot be easily solved by examining related single objective problems. The concept of a direction of steepest ascent is generalized to the multiple objective context and the question of algorithmic convergence is treated. A computational example involving a nonconical unanimity order is given.
