MeshQualityGoal

MeshQualityGoal
is an option for DiscretizeRegion and related functions that specifies a mesh cell quality goal for the result.

DetailsDetails

  • Possible settings include:
  • Automaticquality automatically chosen
    "Minimal"minimal quality, no quality goal
    "Maximal"maximal quality
    qquality
  • The automatically chosen quality goal may depend on PerformanceGoal and other option settings.
  • The quality measure is computed so that for regular polygons and polyhedra and for degenerate polygons and polyhedra .
  • It is generally not possible to generate a mesh to satisfy MeshQualityGoal->1. In this case, the meshing routine will try for the best quality that can typically be achieved.
