A key benefit of this representation is that it allows an arbitrary topology for the surface. However, determining the actual surface topology (e.g. testing for whether or not the surface self-intersects) is somewhat complicated.
This representation is similar to that of Regge calculus [128, 72]4, and can similarly be expected to show 2nd order convergence with the surface resolution.
