Shape Operator Metric for Surface Normal Approximation


Guillermo D. Canas; Steven J. Gortler


This work deals with the problem of practical mesh generation for surface normal approximation. Part of its contribution is in presenting previous work in a unified framework. A new algorithm for surface normal approximation is then introduced which improves upon existing ones in a number of aspects. In particular, it produces better approximations of surfaces both in practice and in the theoretical limit regime. Additionally, it resolves in a simple way some of the problems that previous methods for surface approximation suffered from.
