Mesh Subdivision

Goals of mesh subdivision:

• Finer control for editing processes
• Required for finite element methods

Terminology:

• Refinement is a topological operation, does not change the geometry (new vertices lie on the surface of the original mesh)
• Subdivision combines refinement with a geometric operation (eg. smoothing)

# Curvature-continuous Subdivision
