A Formal Definition of Watertight Meshes

In computer graphics, watertight meshes usually describe meshes consisting of one closed surface. In this sense, watertight meshes do not contain holes and have a clearly defined inside. Therefore, they are commonly required by many applications in computer graphics as well as in computer vision — for example, when voxelizing meshes into occupancy grids or signed distance functions. However, I found it very difficult to find a proper formal definition of watertightness. In this article, I want to discuss the definition I used for my master thesis.
