Reduced basis approximation for shape optimization in thermal flows with a parametrized polynomial geometric map

Reduced basis approximations for geometrically parametrized advection- diffusion equations are investigated. The parametric domains are assumed to be images of a reference domain through a piecewise polynomial map; this may lead to nonaffinely parametrized diffusion tensors that are treated with an empirical interpolation method. An a posteriori error bound including a correction term due to this approximation is given. Results concerning the applied methodology and the rigor of the corrected error estimator are shown for a shape optimization problem in a thermal flow.
