The algorithms and basic equations used in the "PMDS" code for efficient coil design are described. The code calculates stresses and heating in the mid-plane only; there they are highest. The pulse shape is calculated for a capacitor discharge and for a voltage waveform derived from a generator. As examples, the optimization of a monolithic coil and a dual magnet are discussed, the latter based on the European "ARMS" magnet. The influence of materials data on magnet performance is discussed.
