Geometry and Topology for Mesh Generation by Herbert (Duke University, North Carolina) Edelsbrunner


Geometry and Topology for Mesh Generation by Herbert (Duke University, North Carolina) Edelsbrunner

The book combines topics in mathematics (geometry and topology), computer science (algorithms), and engineering (mesh generation). The motivation for these topics is the difficulty, both conceptually and in the technical execution, of combining elements of combinatorial and of numerical algorithms. Mesh generation is a topic where a meaningful combination of these different approaches to problem solving is inevitable. The book develops methods from both areas that are amenable to combination, and explains breakthrough solutions to meshing that fit into this category. This book emphasizes topics that are elementary, attractive, useful, interesting, and lend themselves to teaching, making it an ideal graduate text for courses on mesh generation.


'... a very readable exposition ...'. Monatshefte fur Mathematik '... well organised ... We recommend the book to graduate students and researchers in computational geometry.'
