I will discuss the following approach to mesh smoothing: successively relocate a vertex to the location that optimizes some criterion (max angle, min angle, max circumsphere) for the elements adjacent to the vertex. I will also discuss some ongoing work on isomorphic triangulation-- triangulating two different domains with topologically identical meshes.
