Mesh generation for numerical simulation: Cartesian Grids, Body-fitted grids, block-structured grids/multi-block grids, overlapping grids. Structured mesh generation methods: Algebraic grid generation, elliptic grid generation, hyperbolic grid generation. Unstructured mesh generation methods: Advancing font techniques, Delaunay triangulation techniques, Point insertion methods, Edge and face swapping techniques, quadtree/octree methods, Stretched mesh generation. Meshfree Methods: Smooth particle hydrodynamics (SPH), finite point set method (FPM),  meshless local Petrov Galerkin (MLPG), radial basis function method (RBF), method of approximate particular solutions (MAPS). An introduction to hybrid methods: Cooper grids, Mixed prismatic-tetrahedral elements.
