| A Single-Rate Compression Algorithm, Angle-Analyzer, for
a triangle-quad mesh has been introduced. Only 5 symbols were defined to encode connectivity of an
arbitrary triangle mesh with any genus, holes, and boundaries. (8 symbols for a Quad mesh and 12 symbols
for a hybrid of triangle/quad mesh) A noble Geometry-driven adaptive traversal was designed to
reduce the occurrences of special symbol and generated a low entropy sequence of symbols. Localized approaches with
an irregular grid for adaptive quantizations to encode geometry were also created. As a result, with the same or less level of
distortion, measured by a tool Metro, our Angle-Analyzer could generate on average 20% better compression ratios than the
current leading Touma and Gotsman's algorithm with 12-bit quantization applied.
