Grid Generation Methods - Part I of III

10:30 AM-12:30 PM
Rio Mar 1

For Parts II and III , see MS60 and MS66.

Grid generation is an important pre-processing step in the numerical solution of partial differential equations. Although many methods for generating grids have been proposed, better methods are needed to improve efficiency, robustness, and automation of algorithms. Grid generation is a multidisciplinary activity requiring expertise in mathematics, computer science, and engineering. From the mathematical viewpoint much work remains to discover and analyze the best algorithms. The speakers in this minisymposium will discuss number of grid generation topics and focus particularly on moving mesh methods, mesh quality and optimization, and the latest developments in software.
