Inverse Sizing Function

The Inverse sizing function is also similar to the Linear function, but this method bases edge length at a location on the inverse lengths of edges bounding the surface weighted by their inverse distance from the current location (see Figure 1). The difference between the three linear sizing functions (Linear, Interval, Inverse) is sometimes subtle, but is driven by the geometry being meshed since the influence of these functions is strongly controlled by the number, positioning, and mesh density of the bounding curves relative to the interior surface area.
