First Paragraph
A method for improving the quality of general conformal polygonal and polyhedral meshes is presented. The method is based on local optimization of a cell quality function that can be derived from the inertia tensor of the arrangement of nodes that belong to the cell. A definition of global mesh quality is also presented as a function of the quality of the cells in the mesh. The cell quality function is related to the ability of the arrangement of points to correctly interpolate test fields.
