This book includes the most recent ideas coming from the research and industry in the field of optimization, reliability and the recognition of uncertainties. The book is made up of nine chapters, reviewing uncertainty tools, system reliability and optimization (of sizing, form, topology and multi-objective) of the systems. Optimization-reliability coupling will also be tackled, in order to take into account the uncertainties in the modeling and the resolution of the problems encountered.
