Abstract :
The present paper is dedicated to the solution of constrained shape optimization problems by second order algorithms with respect to both, the primal and {\em dual} variables. This goal is realized by combining a Newton scheme for the primal variables with M\aa{}rtensson's concept of Lagrange multiplier functions for augmented Lagrangians.

Keywords : Shape optimization, boundary element method, multiscale methods, augmented Lagrangian approach, Newton method, M\aa{}rtensson's approach
