What's this, a press release? It belongs as a footnote in Finite element analysis or some related page. —Tamfang 18:33, 7 August 2006 (UTC)

damn, it sure needs some cleanup... it's a shame I only understood two or three words out of it. 07:49, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

The result was: A merger is not apropriate. Some seem to favor sending it to AfD, so I will list it there. --B. Wolterding 07:19, 26 July 2007 (UTC)

As part of the Notability wikiproject, I am trying to sort out whether this topic is notable enough to have its own article. The topic as such seems to be valid, and the method is covered at several places in the literature; but still it seems to me that this is a very specialized method in partial differential equations that might better be handled in a section of a more general article. So, basically, I think that a merger would be best, but I'm not sufficiently familiar with the topic to judge where it should best be merged - maybe to Finite element analysis. Opinions are welcome; please add your comments below. --B. Wolterding 17:40, 1 July 2007 (UTC)

This isn't a finite element scheme; it's a means for designing grids for finite differences. (Specifically, grids on spheres or grids on Earth-shaped surfaces.) One of the few articles linked from this page, GME of Deutscher Wetterdienst, is in the category Category:Numerical climate and weather models. This page doesn't really belong there (it's not a description of a model), but maybe you'd find an appropriate page there. 01:03, 5 July 2007 (UTC)

Would it fit into Finite difference method, then? To me it seems like a generalization of what is already described there to PDEs on certain manifolds. --B. Wolterding 17:08, 7 July 2007 (UTC)
It could fit there, but I think that would give undue weight to this method. Unless you're thinking of writing a comprehensive section on FDs for manifolds. 19:46, 10 July 2007 (UTC)
OK, it seems that there is no good place to merge this article to. Now, would you say the topic is notable for an own article, or should it be discarded? --B. Wolterding 13:34, 19 July 2007 (UTC)
I'd happily see it in AfD ... —Tamfang 03:44, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Has this article ever said what an icosahedral-hexagonal grid is? —Tamfang 08:06, 11 July 2007 (UTC)
