A penalty function algorithm with objective parameters for nonlinear mathematical programming

• In this paper, we present a penalty function with objective parameters for inequality constrained optimization problems. We prove that this type of penalty functions has good properties for helping to solve inequality constrained optimization problems. Moreover, based on the penalty function, we develop an algorithm to solve the inequality constrained optimization problems and prove its convergence under some conditions. Numerical experiments show that we can obtain a satisfactorily approximate solution for some constrained optimization problems as the same as the exact penalty function.
