Breaking new ground in parallel mesh generation research, this text presents both the theoretical foundations and practical aspects related to the implementation of the methods used on current and emerging architectures within this field. Never before has any other book attempted to exclusively cover this important topic. With over twenty years of experience in parallel computing and mesh generation, the expert authors include information on new applications, including the use of parallel mesh generation in computer aided surgery.
