A brief survey of some of the fundamental algorithms in unstructured
mesh generation is presented. Included is a discussion and
categorization of triangle, tetrahedral, quadrilateral and hexahedral
mesh generation methods currently in use in academia and industry. Also
included is a brief discussion of smoothing, cleanup and refinement
algorithms. An informal survey of currently available mesh generation
software is also provided comparing some of their main features.
