(I should check these pages more often!) Indeed, a simplex is an ''n'' triangle (it has ''n''+1 vertices), but according to the CGAL project documentation a '''triangulation''' is a simplicial complex (not a triangle). Why not just leave it to "triangulation"? I think this is the usual wording.

Isn't this a "complex", not a "simplex"?

Complex/simplex

Hi there Dr. Duque,

I kind of understand a simplex to be an n-dimensional triangle and a special case of a simplicial complex. However, I do say kind of understand. If you know that it is indeed a complex rather than a simplex, the page can be re-named. -- Carl McBride 16:25, 12 September 2007 (CEST)

Triangle/triangulation

(I should check these pages more often!) Indeed, a simplex is an n triangle (it has n+1 vertices), but according to the CGAL project documentation a triangulation is a simplicial complex (not a triangle). Why not just leave it to "triangulation"? I think this is the usual wording.
