Abstract:

The mathematical programming problem--minimize fx subject to g sub j x or 0, for j 1,2,...,m, and h sub j x 0 for j m 1,...,m p, where f, g sub j, and h sub j may be nonlinear functions--is solved by solving a sequence of unconstrained minimization problems. The algorithm that is implemented by the code described in this document is discussed in another paper. The mixed interior-exterior penalty function is used and any of several algorithms can be specified for minimizing the penalty function. The program is coded in FORTRAN IV. Author
