tet_mesh, a MATLAB code which constructs, describes, or modifies a mesh of tetrahedrons.
The simplest tet mesh, which we term an order 4 or linear mesh, uses four points to define each tetrahedron. A second type of mesh, known as an order 10 or quadratic mesh, uses ten points.
While an order 4 mesh can naturally be constructed directly from most sets of data points, a mesh of order 10 is not usually constructed directly from the data; at least in the simplest case, one wants the 6 extra nodes to be the midpoints of the sides determined by the 4 vertices.
Thus, an order 10 tet mesh is typically generated in two steps:

tet_mesh is available in a C++ version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
