On the existence of strongly regular families of triangulations for domains with a piecewise smooth boundary. (English) Zbl 1060.65665
The authors give a constructive proof of the existence of strongly regular families of triangulations for planar domains with piecewise curved boundaries. The algorithm for the construction is described. Some additional properties of the resulting triangulations are discussed.
