We present a practical approach for solving volume and surface mesh optimization
problems. Our approach is based on Newton's method which uses
both first-order (gradient) and second-order (Hessian) derivatives of the
non-linear objective function. The volume and surface optimization algorithms are
modified such that surface constraints and mesh validity are satisfied. We also
propose a simple and efficient Hessian modification method when the Hessian
matrix is not positive definite. We demonstrate our approach by comparing
our method with a popular nonlinear conjugate gradient method in terms of
both efficiency and mesh quality.
