This book is intended to be a cookbook for students and researchers to understand the finite element method and optimization methods and couple them to effect shape optimization. The optimization part of the book will survey optimization methods and focus on the genetic algorithm and Powell's method for implementation in the codes. It will contain pseudo-code for the relevant algorithms and homework problems to reinforce the theory to compile finite element programs capable of shape optimization.
