Abstract: It is proved that a discrete delta function introduced by Smereka [P. Smereka, The numerical approximation of a delta function with application to level set methods, J. Comput. Phys. 211 (2006) 7790] gives a secondorder accurate quadrature rule for surface integrals using values on a regular background grid. The delta function is found using a technique of Mayo [A. Mayo, The fast solution of Poisson's and the biharmonic equations on irregular regions, SIAM J. Numer. Anal. 21 (1984) 285299]. It can be expressed naturally using a level set function. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
