Preserved Structure Constants for Red Refinements of Product Elements

In this paper we discuss some strategy for red refinements of product elements and show that there are certain structure characteristics (d-sines of angles formed by certain edges in the initial partition) which remain constant during refinement processes. Such a property immediately implies the validity of the so-called maximum angle condition, which is a strongly desired property in interpolation theory and finite element analysis. Our construction also gives a clear refinement scheme preserving shape regularity.
