linear finite element; mesh regularity; minimum angle condition; convergence; higher-dimensional problems; triangulations
The famous Zlámal's minimum angle condition has been widely used for construction of a regular family of triangulations (containing nondegenerating triangles) as well as in convergence proofs for the finite element method in $2d$. In this paper we present and discuss its generalization to simplicial partitions in any space dimension.
