Dynamic Meshing Using Adaptively Sampled Distance Fields
Jackson Pope
201 Broadway Street, 8th Floor
Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139 USA

A new method of generating detail-directed, viewpoint-dependent, dynamic triangle meshes using adaptively sampled distance fields, which produces high-quality, low-triangle-count meshes.

Mapping Independent Triangulation of Parametric Surfaces
Marco Attene
Via De Marini 6
Torre Di Francia
Genova 16149 ITALY

Triangulation in parametric space can produce poor and even inconsistent meshes. This sketch describes an almost regular triangulation using inverse mapping that describes local stretching and twisting of the surface.
