Algorithms for computing channel capacity have been proposed by many researches. Recently, one of the authors proposed an efficient algorithm using Newton's method. Since this algorithm has local quadratic convergence, it is advantageous when we want to obtain a numerical solution with high accuracy. In this letter, it is shown that this algorithm can be extended to the algorithm for computing the constrained capacity, i.e the capacity of discrete memoryless channels with linear constraints. The global convergence of the extended algorithm is proved, and its effectiveness is verified by numerical examples.
