### Abstract

... these new methods, we develop a prototype, called Novel (Nonlinear Optimization Via External Lead), that solves nonlinear constrained and unconstrained problems in a unified framework. We show experimental results in applying Novel to solve nonlinear optimization problems, including (a) the learning of feedforward neural networks, (b) the design of quadrature-mirror-filter digital filter banks, (c) the satisfiability problem, (d) the maximum satisfiability problem, and (e) the design of multiplierless quadrature-mirror-filter digital filter banks. Our method achieves better solutions than existing methods, or achieves solutions of the same quality but at a lower cost.
