shape optimization; penalty method; extrapolation; finite elements
A model shape optimal design in $\mathbb{R}^2$ is solved by means of the penalty method with extrapolation, which enables to obtain high order approximations of both the state function and the boundary flux, thus offering a reliable gradient for the sensitivity analysis. Convergence of the proposed method is proved for certain subsequences of approximate solutions.
