Here we consider the Quadrilaterals D defined above, and compare the interior and exterior problems.
Finally, for the case of quadrilaterals with curvilinear boundary, where these two methods do not apply, we give results obtained by the hp-FEM method, and their error estimates based on the relative error and the reciprocal error estimate.
For very large quadrilaterals the map center is significantly compressed, with an undesirable "pincushion" appearance.
The proofs of Theorems 2 and 3 break down when applied to quadrilaterals and hexahedra because, in the notation of those theorems, [E.
step 2: Construct a point P outside the quadrilateral and mark it as center in the Transform menu.
Depending upon the size and the complexity of the cross section, models have varied in size between one hundred and two hundred, four-node quadrilateral elements.

Hart based his design for "Rainbow Bits" on an icosahedron transformed via his propellor operator into a three-dimensional mosaic of 20 equilateral triangles and 60 kite-shaped quadrilaterals.
Similarly, the areas for the remaining one-degree by one-degree quadrilaterals are 11,160.
Here are the traditional quadrilateral definitions:
At all levels of recursion the Fuller grid is comprised of hexagons slightly more compact than corresponding Snyder grid hexagons, both being far more compact than the corresponding constant area and equal angle grid quadrilaterals.
We place a 1 kg weight at each vertex, replace the edges by thin weightless rods, and in fact cover the quadrilateral with a thin rigid weightless surface, as we will finally want to balance the quadrilateral at an interior point.
