Connectivity Editing and Optimization for Polygonal Meshes

The connectivity of polygonal meshes is important in a wide range of applications. A very good example are architectural constructions that make the mesh lines and faces visible. I will talk about some past and present research involving the interactive connectivity editing of polygonal meshes and the automatic optimization of mesh connectivity. I will discuss examples from triangle meshes, quad meshes, quad dominant meshes, and mixed triangle / quad meshes.
