Recent progress in PDE constrained optimization on shape manifolds is based on the Hadamard form of shape derivatives, i.e., in the form of integrals at the boundary of the shape under investigation, as well as on intrinsic shape metrics. From a numerical point of view, domain integral forms of shape derivatives seem promising, which rather require an outer metric on the domain surrounding the shape boundary. This paper tries to harmonize both points of view by employing a Steklov-Poincar\'e…

Nonlinear Conjugate Gradient Methods for PDE Constrained Shape Optimization Based on Steklov-Poincaré-Type Metrics

A continuous perspective on modeling of shape optimal design problems

This article considers shape optimization problems as optimal control problems via the method of mappings and focuses on the choice of the set of transformations, which is motivated from a function space perspective.
