## EikMesh

The EikMesh mesh generator was published in [1] and is heavily based on DistMesh a simple and mesh generator (in MATLAB) which was developed by Per-Olof Persson and Gilbert Strang.

The EikMesh mesh generator was descriped in [1](https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jocs.2018.09.009) and is heavily based on [DistMesh](http://persson.berkeley.edu/distmesh/) a simple and mesh generator (in MATLAB) which was developed by Per-Olof Persson and Gilbert Strang.

EikMesh inherits its specification of the geometry via signed distance functions and the concept of iterative smoothing by converging towards a force equilibrium from DistMesh.

However, EikMesh completely avoids the computation of the Delaunay triangulation, generates a different and cache friendly initial triangulation and treats boundary elements more carefully.

Additionally, EikMesh supports geometries defined by a [segment bounded planar straight-line graphs](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planar_straight-line_graph)(PSLG).
