This, of course, assumes the surface mesh to be two-manifold. This, of course, assumes the surface mesh to be two-manifold.
The main concept of %OpenVolumeMesh is slightly different but shares some of its ideas with The main concept of %OpenVolumeMesh is slightly different but shares some of its ideas with
%OpenMesh. In %OpenVolumeMesh, all entities are stored in arrays (STL vectors) rather than %OpenMesh. In order to represent volumetric meshes (three-manifolds),
%OpenVolumeMesh extends the set of entities by \e cells.
In %OpenVolumeMesh, all entities are stored in arrays (STL vectors) rather than
in adjacency linked lists. This has the major advantage that the data structure allows in adjacency linked lists. This has the major advantage that the data structure allows
