Krister Svanberg, professor

E-mail: krille@math.kth.se
Civilingenjör (Teknisk fysik) 1975,
Tekn.Dr 1982, Docent 1993, Professor 2005.

Worked for the
Contract Research Group of Applied Mathematics, 1976-1985.

Worked as senior lecturer
at the division of Optimization and Systems Theory,
1986-2004.

Now works as professor
at the same division, since January 2005.

Main current area of research is
topology optimization of linearly elastic structures.

Has developed an optimization method called MMA (Method of
Moving Asymptotes),

and another optimization method called GCMMA (Globally
Convergent version of MMA).

The corresponding computer codes in Matlab
are available for academic usage.

Prospective users
should write an e-mail,
explaining the intended usage of the codes.

For the original MMA paper from 1987,
see originalmma.pdf.

For the mathematical background of GCMMA,
see siampaper.pdf.

For a detailed description of the solution methods used in
the Matlab

implementations of MMA and GCMMA,
see mmagcmma.pdf.

For some optimized academic truss structures, see
