This paper presents Schuldt’s Method of Multipliers for nonlinear programming problems. The basics of this new exterior penalty function method are discussed with emphasis upon the ease of implementation. The merit of the technique for medium to large non-linear programming problems is evaluated, and demonstrated using the Eason and Fenton test problems.
