Discrete Minimal Surfaces

Minimal surfaces are surfaces that minimize the total surface area given a boundary constraint. A discrete minimal surface is polyhedral, i.e. constructed of polygonal faces. In this Demonstration, these polygons are replaced with their inscribed circles for purposes of visualization in computational geometry and simulations.
