Shape optimization problems are treated from the classical and modern perspectives Targets a broad audience of graduate students in pure and applied mathematics, as well as engineers requiring a solid mathematical basis for the solution of practical problems Requires only a standard knowledge in the calculus of variations, differential equations, and functional analysis Driven by several good examples and illustrations Poses some open questions.This purpose is not easy to be attained; what we can do is to look for weak geometrical or topological constraints which would make a class of domains compact (in the chosen topology) and which are strong enough to give shape continuity.
