We study numerically the dynamical triangulation formulation of two-dimensional quantum gravity using a restricted class of triangulation, so-called minimal triangulations, in which only vertices of coordination number 5, 6, and 7 are allowed [1]. A real-space RG analysis shows that for pure gravity (central charge c = 0) this restriction does not affect the critical behavior of the model. Furthermore, we show that the critical behavior of an Ising model coupled to minimal dynamical triangulations (c = 1/2) is still governed by the KPZ-exponents.
