A note on the optimization of constrained design problems

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

This paper describes a new algorithm for solving constrained optimization problems, based on a method proposed by Chattopadhyay. The proposed algorithm replaces the original problem with m constraints, m>1, by a sequence of optimization problems, with one constraint. Here, we modify the algorithm given by Chattopadhyay in order to make it applicable for a larger class of optimization problems and to improve its convergence characteristics.
