This book will serve as a valuable source of information about triangulations for the graduate student and researcher. With emphasis on computational issues, it presents the basic theory necessary to construct and manipulate triangulations. In particular, the book gives a tour through the theory behind the Delaunay triangulation, including algorithms and software issues. It also discusses various data structures used for the representation of triangulations.

From the reviews:
"The overall flavor of the book reflects the use of triangulations for the description of planar objects and as the domain for bivariate functions. ... The book is meant as a text for a graduate class on triangulations." (Gerald Farin, SIAM Review, Vol. 49 (2), 2007)
