This paper develops a new derivative-free method for solving linearly constrained nonsmooth optimization problems. The objective functions in these problems are, in general, non-regular locally Lipschitz continuous function. The computation of generalized subgradients of such functions is difficult task. In this paper we suggest an algorithm for the computation of subgradients of a broad class of non-regular locally continuous Lipschitz functions. This algorithm is based on the notion of a discrete gradient. An algorithm for solving linearly constrained nonsmooth optimization problems based on discrete gradients is developed. We report preliminary results of numerical experiments. These results demonstrate that the proposed algorithm is efficient for solving linearly constrained nonsmooth optimization problems.
