surflet

noun; blending
A little surface apparent meaning: surface-lets ? little surfaces used to approximate large complex surfaces. In the ECE community, an active area of research is to represent a large complicated 'object' using smaller objects. These smaller objects usually have the suffix '?let', like wavelets (little waves), wedgelets (little wedges), etc. Our group came up with a new representation which uses little surfaces to approximate big surfaces. Hence, following the tradition, we decided to name our little surfaces surflets.
 
Lets call these new representations surflets?.
Etymology : blending 'surface' + -'let' (little, N.) ? surflet (little surface)
