Mesh adaptation is considered here as the research of an optimum that minimizes the P1 interpolation error of a function u of Rn given a number of vertices. A continuous modeling is described by considering classes of equivalence between meshes which are analytically represented by a metric tensor field. Continuous metrics are exhibited for Lp error model and mesh order of convergence are analyzed. Numerical examples are provided in two and three dimensions.
