Abstract.In this paper we use the penalty approach in order to study two constrained minimization problems. A penalty function is said to have the exact penalty property if there is a penalty coefficient for which a solution of an unconstrained penalized problem is a solution of the corresponding constrained problem. In this paper we establish the existence of the exact penalty for an equality-constrained problem and an inequality-constrained problem in a Banach space.
