  booktitle={Symposium on Computational Geometry},
For several commonly-used solution techniques for partial differential equations, the first step is to divide the problem region into simply-shaped elements, creating a mesh. We present a technique for creating high-quality triangular meshes for regions on curved surfaces. This technique is an extension of previous methods we developed for regions in the plane. For both flat and curved surfaces, the resulting meshes are guaranteed to exhibit the following properties: (1) internal and external… CONTINUE READING
