@article{Baeza20082DES, title={2-D Euler Shape Design on Nonregular Flows Using Adjoint Rankine-Hugoniot Relations}, author={Antonio Baeza and Carlos Castro and Francisco Palacios and E. Zuazua}, journal={AIAA Journal}, year={2008}, volume={47}, pages={552-562} }

Optimal Shape Design (OSD) aims at flnding the minimum of a functional by controlling the Partial Difierential Equation (PDE) modeling the ∞ow using surface (domain boundaries) deformation techniques. As a solution to the enormous computational resources required for classical shape optimization of functionals of aerodynamic interest, one of the best strategies is to use methods inspired in control theory. To do this, one assumes that a given aerodynamic surface is an element that produces lift…
