CS 294-5: Meshing and Triangulation (Autumn 1999)
Papers Presented by Students
Each student in the class, including auditors, is expected to present one paper on triangulations or mesh generation. The presentation is a requirement for a passing grade. (If you are taking the course S/U, it is the only requirement.) Please choose one or more of the following dates and one or more of the following papers, and send me email to let me know. I'll assign you the first date and paper on your list that aren't taken. I'll send you a reply to let you know whether you got the date and paper you asked for.

Please have a date assigned to you no later than September 28. You are welcome to choose only a date now, and put off choosing the paper until up to a week before your date. However, papers are assigned first-come first-served. You are also welcome to choose a relevant paper not on this list (and you are encouraged to do so if it is helpful to your own research), but you must provide me with a copy one week before your presentation. You may change your mind about what paper to present up to a week before your presentation, but please let me know as early as possible.

There is time for two student presentations on each available date. When a student chooses a date and paper, I'll put their name next to each below, so that you'll know which dates and papers were already taken last time I updated this page.

Your presentation should take 25 to 30 minutes. Don't feel you must present everything in a paper; rather, concentrate on presenting the most interesting or important parts. Give theoretical proofs (if any) only if you think you can present them well in the time allotted.

Please use the overhead projector for your presentation if possible. I will try to make blank write-on transparencies available, if I can lay my hands on enough of them. (If I can't, you'll have to buy your own. Ditto for photocopies of figures in the papers.)


Up to two students may present on each of the following dates.

Thursday, October 7 - Jason Riedy, Andy Neureuther.
Thursday, October 21 - Jae Kim, Borlin Shyu.
Tuesday, November 2 - Dan Simkins, Jordan Smith.
