Abstract : The paper presents an algorithm for solving nonlinearly constrained programming problems. The algorithm reduces the original problem to a sequence of linearlyconstrained minimization problems, for which efficient algorithms are available. A convergence theorem is given which states that if the process is started sufficiently close to a strict secondorder KuhnTucker point, then the sequence produced by the algorithm exists and converges Rquadratically to that point.
