In this paper, we prove some
regularity results for the boundary of an open subset of
$\xR^d$ which
minimizes the Dirichlet's energy among all open subsets with
prescribed volume. In particular we show that, when
the volume constraint is “saturated”,
the reduced boundary of the optimal shape (and even the whole
boundary in dimension 2)
is regular if the state function is nonnegative.
