In the May, 1955 issue of the Journal of the Operations Research Society of America, B. Klein proposed that ordinary methods of the differential calculus be used to minimize a function z of n variables x sub 1, x sub 2 . . ., x sub n, where the latter are subject to inequality constraints instead of the usual equality constraints. This report discusses whether this proposal can be used constructively to determine the optimum.
