Research Note Abstract
The idea behind a universal mesh is that a background mesh can be deformed to obtain conforming meshes for a family of domains. Algorithms for universal meshes have so far been limited to geometries with C2-regular curves. We introduce an algorithm to generate conforming meshes for domains with C2-regular boundaries. The central idea of the algorithm divides the boundary into a finite number of C2-continuous curves, and edges of the background mesh are selected for each one of them so that the closest point projection of this set of edges onto the curve is a homeomorphism. We suggest conditions on the background mesh needed to guarantee that the algorithm selects a set of edges that is in fact homeomorphic to the boundary, the proof of which is still in progress.
