QMG: mesh generation and related software

The QMG package does finite element mesh generation in two and three dimensions. The package includes geometric modeling software, the mesh generator itself, and a finite element solver. The software is written primarily in C++ and matlab. The QMG package is written by S. Vavasis. The mesh generator is based on an algorithm due to S. Mitchell and S. Vavasis. Please select a topic from the following list.
