Our aim here is to present numerical methods for solving a general nonlinear programming problem. These methods are based on transformation of a given constrained minimization problem into an unconstrained maximin problem. This transformation is done by using a generalized Lagrange multiplier technique. Such an approach permits us to use Newton's and gradient methods for nonlinear programming. Convergence proofs are provided, and some numerical results are given.
