  • Abstract

Mesh adaptation is studied from the mesh control point of view. Two principles, equidistribution and alignment, are obtained and found to be necessary and sufficient for a complete control of the size, shape, and orientation of mesh elements. A key component in these principles is the monitor function, a symmetric and positive definite matrix used for specifying the mesh information. A monitor function is defined based on interpolation error in a way with which an error bound is minimized on a mesh satisfying the equidistribution and alignment conditions. Algorithms for generating meshes satisfying the conditions are developed and two-dimensional numerical results are presented.
