We present a compact overview of the recent development in free material optimization (FMO), a branch of structural optimization. The goal of FMO is to design the ultimately best material (its mechanical properties and distribution in space) for a given purpose. We show that the current FMO models naturally lead to linear and non-linear semidefinite programming problems (SDP); their numerical tractability is then guaranteed by recently introduced SDP algorithms.
