Almost all electrical devices, from shavers and telephones to televisions and computers, contain some electronic circuitry to control their functioning. This circuitry—VLSI circuits, resistors, capacitors, and other electric components—is placed on a printed circuit board. To design printed circuit boards one has to decide where to place the components, and how to connect them. This raises a number of interesting geometric problems, of which this chapter tackles one: mesh generation.
