### Abstract

A new criterion is given for constructing an optimal triangulation of surfaces and bodies. The triangulation, called the {\em tight} triangulation, is convexity preserving and accepts long, thin triangles whenever they are useful. Both properties are not shared by the maxmin triangulation, which in the plane is called the Delaunay triangulation.
