I am interested in the adjoint method for shape optimization problems. However, I couldn't find a helpful introduction. So I come here and look forward to some enlightening advices.
Could you direct me to any textbooks, published papers or free online source course materials.
And to clearify several things: I am familiar with FEM, matrix computation, calculus of variation, etc.; I only want to learn the adjoint method for shape optimization in solid mechanics, specifically on continuous level.
Though the question does not perfectly fit this website, but it seems to be the best choice for a shot amongst stack-websites.
