This book combines mathematics (geometry and topology), computer science (algorithms), and engineering (mesh generation) in order to solve the conceptual and technical problems in the combining of elements of combinatorial and numerical algorithms. The book develops methods from areas that are amenable to combination and explains recent breakthrough solutions to meshing that fit into this category. It should be an ideal graduate text for courses on mesh generation. The specific material is selected giving preference to topics that are elementary, attractive, lend themselves to teaching, are useful, and interesting.
'The book is an ideal graduate text for courses on mesh generation. The topics of the books are elementary, attractive, useful, interesting, and one section deals with open question in this area.' Mathematical Reviews '... a very readable exposition ...'. Monatshefte fur Mathematik '... well organised ... We recommend the book to graduate students and researchers in computational geometry.' Janos Kincses, Acta Sci. Math.
