Verdict is a collection of subroutines for evaluating the geometric qualities
of triangles, quadrilaterals, tetrahedra, and hexahedra using a variety of functions.
A quality is a real number assigned to one of these shapes depending on its
particular vertex coordinates. These functions are used to evaluate the input to
finite element, finite volume, boundary element, and other types of solvers that approximate
the solution to partial differential equations defined over regions of space.
This article describes the most recent version of Verdict and provides a summary of
the main properties of the quality functions offered by the library. It finally demonstrates
the versatility and applicability of Verdict by illustrating its use in several
scientific applications that pertain to pre, post, and end-to-end processing.
