A simple geometric condition that defines the class of classical (stereographic, conic and cylindrical) conformal mappings from a sphere onto a plane is derived. The problem of optimization of computational grid for spherical domains is solved in an entire class of conformal mappings on spherical (geodesic) disk. The characteristics of computational grids(More)
The problem of the generation of homogeneous grids for spherical domains is considered in the class of conformal conic mappings. The equivalence between secant and tangent projections is shown and splitting the set of conformal conic mappings into equivalence classes is presented. The problem of minimization of the mapping factor variation is solved in the(More)
