  • The exterior Bernoulli free boundary problem is considered and reformulated into a shape optimization setting wherein the Neumann data is being tracked. The shape differentiability of the cost functional associated with the formulation is studied, and the expression for its shape derivative is established through a Lagrangian formulation coupled with the velocity method. Also, it is illustrated how the computed shape derivative can be combined with the modified $H^1$ gradient method to obtain an efficient algorithm for the numerical solution of the shape optimization problem.
