  1. Frédéric Alauzet (INRIA):
    Metric-Based Anisotropic Mesh Adaptation

    This course is an introduction to anisotropic mesh adaptation based on the prescription of a metric field to govern the mesh generation. I will first give some geometrical and physical motivations for considering mesh adaptation in numerical simulations. In a second part, the notion of metric is introduced as well as the generation of an adapted mesh with respect to a metric field. Then, the mesh adaptation process is described step by step. I will focus on an example of metric construction based on an analysis of the interpolation error and on the interpolation stage. Finally, the practical construction of metric will be addressed.

  5. Paul Louis George (INRIA):
    Mesh generation and mesh adaptation methds and techniques

    Introductory materials, basic notions and definitions. Theoretical issues (existence, uniquiness, ...). Quality, tentative definition(s). About Delaunay, triangulation problems versus meshing problems. More than Delaunay, from effective methods to anisotropic issues. Practical issues, basic operations, data structures, numerical problems.
