A cost function involving the eigenvalues of an elastic structure is optimized using a phase-field approach, which allows for topology changes and multiple materials.We show continuity and differentiability of simple eigenvalues in the phase-field context. Existence of global minimizers can be shown, for which first order necessary optimality conditions can be obtained in generic situations. Furthermore, a combined eigenvalue and compliance optimization is discussed.
