Optimal triangulation of saddle surfaces

To appear in Beiträge zur Algebra und Geometrie—Contributions to Algebra and Geometry (2017), 14 pages, doi:10.1007/s13366-017-0351-9, arXiv:1511.01361 [math.MG].


We consider the piecewise linear approximation of saddle functions of the form f(x,y) = ax2-by2 under the L-infinity error norm. We show that interpolating approximations are not optimal. One can get slightly smaller errors by allowing the vertices of the approximation to move away from the graph of the function.
