Re-topology, or sometimes just retopology, is the process of adjusting the topology of an existing 3D model. Topology refers to mesh-based 3D models, and is the way the individual polygons are meshed together into a 3d grid, with each polygon sharing a dividing line with each of it?s neighbours, until the mesh encloses a hollow 3D shape.

Thus retopology is the process of creating more polygons to fit into the mesh, adjusting the positioning of those already there, or downsizing the existing number of polygons to try the same shape with less.

Creating Polygonal Shapes through a Merger with Topology
By merging the traditionally distinct fields of topology and geometry, through the discovery of a new type of mathematics called persistent homology, math researchers have created a set of equations which simply describe the pattern and placement of complex fractals as part of a polygonal model - such as the unique froth on a wave, within the reach of real-time rendering
