Sensitivity analysis and optimal shape design are key issues in engineering that have been affected by advances in numerical tools currently available. This book/interactive CD-ROM presents basic optimization techniques that can be used to compute the sensitivity of a given design to local change or to improve its performance by local optimization of these data. The relevance and scope of these techniques have improved dramatically in recent years because of progress in discretization strategies, optimization algorithms, automatic differentiation, software availability, and the power of personal computers. Key features of this original, progressive, and comprehensive approach: * description of mathematical background and underlying tools * up-to-date review of grid construction and control, optimization algorithms, software differentiation and gradient calculations * practical solutions for implementation in many real-life problems * solution of illustrative...
