Abstract

This chapter provides details of how PDE based geometries can be efficiently parameterized. The geometry generated using PDEs has an efficient parametrization associated with it. That is, PDE based geometries are first of all characterized by boundary conditions. Furthermore, one can change the geometry easily by means of changing a small set of parameters.
