Questions tagged [voronoi-diagrams]

For a given finite point set S, a voronoi diagram is a tessellation of a euclidean space. In the 2D case, it consists of conforming convex polygons surrounding each point such that for given a point p in S, any point in the enclosing polygon is closer to p than any other point in S.

Producing Voronoi diagram in three dimensional

A Voronoi diagram is a kind of tesselation that divided the medium into polygons in 2D and polyhedrons in 3D. Although there are many algorithms to construct a Voronoi diagram, some of them are faster ...

Finding points inside cells of power (generalized Voronoi) diagram

Suppose we have a set of points $p_1,\ldots,p_n\in\mathbb R^d$ as well as a set of weights $w_1,\ldots,w_n\in\mathbb R$. Recall that the power cell associated to the pair $(p_k,w_k)$ is given by: $$\...

Can I use matplotlib to plot the surface of a 3D body?

If Matplotlib could volume render, I would not ask this question. But it can't. Can I however instead use Matplotlib to plot the surface of a 3D body? I.e. is there a way to (i) triangulate the ...

How can one prove the duality of Voronoi and Delaunay?

Hoping I'm not misunderstanding the concept here, but it is my understanding that Voronoi Diagrams and Delaunay Tesselations are 'dual' to one another, owing to the fact that each' solution makes ...

Elliptic PDE finite volume method with Dirichlet boundary condition

I want to discretize the following equation using a Finite Volume Method $$\nabla \cdot (a(x)\nabla u)=f(x)\\x\in \Omega \subset \mathbb{R}^2 \\u_{|\partial\Omega}=g$$ I'm using Voronoi cells here: ...

Fast Algorithms for the Simplicial Decomposition of a Convex Polytope in N-Dimensions

I'm in the process of constructing an algorithm which computes the Voronoi diagram of a set of points, but I now need a method to decompose each Voronoi cell into simplices. The information we have is:...

Polynomial reconstruction on unstructured grids

For a 1D grid I can calculate a Lagrange polynomial through an arbitrary set of points for the reconstruction of a polynomial function. In 2D I have an unstructured grid and want to interpolate the ...

Computing the Voronoi diagram of a region inside a box

I am facing a problem as follows: I have a box full of points with a certain unknown distribution and I would like to calculate its Voronoï Diagram. The problem is that the number of points is so huge ...

Restrict Voronoï diagram to a polygon

I managed to build the Voronoï diagram of n points using Fortune's algorithm. This gives me a set of half-edges, some of which being infinite (no starting point and/or no end point). I'd like to ...

How are the Voronoi Tesselation and Delaunay triangulation problems duals of each other?

I have always been told that the Voronoi diagram is the dual of the Delaunay triangulation problem. In what sense can they be duals of each other? I thought that dual problems (i.e. in linear ...
