The Worst-Case Multiple Load FMO Problem Revisited
We propose a new formulation of the worst-case multiple-load problem of free material optimization. It leads to an optimization problem with bilinear matrix inequality constraints. The resulting problem can be solved by a recently developed code PENBMI. The new formulation is shown to be more computationally efficient than the recently used one.
