    A number of papers on optimum mechanical and structural designs have lately appeared in Japan. Those papers related to dynamics problems in the last decade (1983-1992) were classified and reviewed. Several sophisticated methods have been required, and have been developed, for the purposes of those optimizations. Some of the methods are introduced here briefly, by means of some examples. This review may provide some help for understanding the recent progress of the work in Japan.
