Usage: [mfTutteMap] = TutteMap(mnTriangulation)

Maintaining the existing triangulation, this function maps a surface mesh onto a planar unit circle. Tutte's algorithm [1] is used. The simple technique for finding point locations is from [2].
'mnTriangulation' is an Nx3 array as returned by delaunayn, defining the triangulation of the surface mesh. 'mfTutteMap' will be an Mx2 array, each row of which defines the planar location of a vertex. The surface triangulation should contain no holes, and must have a boundary! The first boundary cycle will be mapped onto the unit circle, with the interior points mapped inside the circle such that no edge crossings occur.
