A formula is presented for determining the net sum of mesh singularity indices that must occur in an all-quadrilateral (quad) meshof a face after the mesh properties have been assigned on the face’s boundaries and according to the face’s Euler Characteristic.The formula is derived from Bunin’s Continuum Theory for Unstructured Mesh Generation.
