Description Shape calculus studies the dependence of solutions of partial differential equations on defor- mations of the domain and/or interfaces. It is the foundation of gradient methods for shape optimization. The seminar will study several sections of monographs and research papers deal- ing with analytical and numerical aspects of shape calculus.
