Mesh generation is a necessary prerequisite for the numerical analysis of engineering problems--both geometrically complicated and large size. With an increasing need for automatic applications to accomplish these complicated tasks, it offers an in-depth survey of existing techniques for mesh generation. A number of problems are given and their solutions carefully explained. Also includes detailed coverage of traditional structured grids along with unstructured meshes of triangles and tetrahedra.
