In this chapter we overview the basic ideas behind numerical grid adaptation to geometrical features of the domain, its interfaces and boundaries, as well as adaptation to the solution features, such as high gradients, that are often employed to improve the accuracy and efficiency of the computation. Through representative examples we discuss implementation and stability issues for static and dynamic remapping grid generation methods. The last two sections describe Level Set and Front Tracking Methods for propagating moving interfaces and fronts.
