In many application fields choosing optimal shapes requires the minimization
of a cost functional that depends on many physical parameters. In this
talk we will discuss a method of using parallel computers to solve a class of
application motivated shape optimization problems. Numerical comparisons
will demonstrate that using parallelism drastically reduces the amount of time
needed to solve certain problems.
