The Optimization Lab provides a state-of-the-art solver for a broad range of multiphysics optimization problems in combination with COMSOL Multiphysics and its modules. Using the new Optimization interface you can apply optimization methods to your multiphysics designs. Examples include topology optimization and inverse modeling.

The Optimization Lab is based on the SNOPT code developed by Philip E. Gill, UC San Diego, and Walter Murray and Michael A. Saunders, Stanford University.
