Many plotting functions have a
Method options with descriptions like this:
Plot: "the method to use for refining curves"
RegionPlot: "the method to use for refining regions"
ContourPlot: "the method to use for refining contours"
The purpose of this option is documented (control mesh refinement), but its possible values are not.
What values can we use for this option in plotting functions, especially as relating to mesh refinement?
I found a number of related questions, but there the answers only provide starting points. There is no discussion of how to control mesh/curve refinement.
