4About the work Given a closed Triangular Mesh, construct a function that interpolates a set ofvalues defined at vertices of the mesh.Parameterize the interior points of the mesh.
26Conclusions and Future work Mean value coordinates are a simple,but powerful method for creating functions that interpolate values assigned to vertices of a closed mesh.One important generalization would be to derive mean value coordinates for piecewise linear mesh with arbitrary closed polygons as faces.
