Quadric-Based Polygonal Surface Simplification

  title={Quadric-Based Polygonal Surface Simplification},
  author={Michael Garland},
Many applications in computer graphics and related fields can benefit from automatic simplification of complex polygonal surface models. Applications are often confronted with either very densely over-sampled surfaces or models too complex for the limited available hardware capacity. An effective algorithm for rapidly producing high-quality approximations of the original model is a valuable tool for managing data complexity. In this dissertation, I present my simplification algorithm, based on… CONTINUE READING
