Progress in Global Optimization and Shape Design
In this paper, we reformulate global optimization problems in terms of boundary value problems. This allows us to introduce a new class of optimization algorithms. Indeed, many optimization methods can be seen as discretizations of initial value problems for differential equations or systems of differential equations. We apply a particular algorithm included in the former class to the shape optimization of coastal structures.
