An analytical formula for the shape derivative of the magnetic field integral equation (MFIE) method of moments (MoM) system matrix (or impedance matrix) is derived and validated against finite difference formulas. The motivation for computing the shape derivatives stems from adjoint variable methods (AVM). The Galerkin system matrix is constructed by means of Rao-Wilton-Glisson (RWG) basis and testing functions. The shape derivative formula yields an integral representation which is of same singularity order as the integrals appearing in the traditional MFIE system matrix.
