Dear Mathematica Users,
     I am attempting to solve a nonlinear optimization problem that
contains four variables and several parameters, with non-negativity
constraints that are binding.  I have been basically looking for
nonlinear versions of the "LinearProgramming" function in Mathematica
with limited success.  For example, Jean-Christophe Culioli and Joseph
P. Skudlarek's MultiplierMethod is useful, but only for numerical
computations.  My equations involve several parameters, and hence I
would like to obtain a solution in terms of those parameters.  If you
know of anyone who has developed such a program, could you please let
me know?  I appreciate your help.
