Abstract
This work presents an algorithm for coarsening all-hexahedral meshes while maintaining all-hexahedral connectivity. The dual of a mesh is described and the constraints on hexahedral mesh modification are explained. This paper then describes how mesh coarsening can be performed by using the information contained in the dual.
