In this paper, we analyze the omplexity of natural parallelizations of Delaunay re nement methods for mesh generation. The parallelizations employ a simple strategy: at ea h iteration, they hoose a set of \independent" points to insert into the domain, and then update the Delaunay triangulation. We show that su h a set of independent points an be onstru ted eÆ iently in parallel and that the number of iterations needed is O(log2(L/s)), where L is the diameter of the domain, and s is the… CONTINUE READING
