Summary: We summarize recent advances in level set methods and fast marching methods for propagating interfaces, which are computational techniques for tracking evolving fronts in two and three space dimensions. Here, we review the interconnection between the two techniques, discuss the recent extension of level set techniques to triangulated unstructured meshes, and provide a few examples of these techniques.
