Simplification of Tetrahedral Meshes with Error Bounds

  title={Simplification of Tetrahedral Meshes with Error Bounds},

  journal={IEEE Trans. Vis. Comput. Graph.},
We present a method for the construction of multiple levels of tetrahedral meshes approximating a trivariate scalar-valued function at different levels of detail. Starting with an initial, high-resolution triangulation of a three-dimensional region, we construct coarser representation levels by collapsing edges of the mesh. Each triangulation defines a linear spline function, where the function values associated with the vertices are the spline coefficients. Error bounds are stored for… CONTINUE READING
