MiS Preprint Repository

We have decided to discontinue the publication of preprints on our preprint server as of 1 March 2024. The publication culture within mathematics has changed so much due to the rise of repositories such as ArXiV ( that we are encouraging all institute members to make their preprints available there. An institute's repository in its previous form is, therefore, unnecessary. The preprints published to date will remain available here, but we will not add any new preprints here.


17th GAMM Seminar Leipzig on Construction of Grid Generation Algorithms

Wolfgang Hackbusch and Ulrich Langer


Grid generation is a tool used in various fields. Scientific visualisation in Computer Science has other goals than the grid constructions in numerical discretisations of partial differential equations. Modern adaptive techniques require a cheap management of unstructured grids subject to several side conditions.

The topics discussed in these proceedings concern the grid construction in general, data structure, adaptive techniques, geoscientific applications, grid hierarchies in multi-grid methods and stability questions.
