MESHLESS
Meshless Voronoi Basis Functions
MESHLESS
is a FORTRAN90 program which
generates a set of local basis functions, without the use of a mesh,
by Lili Ju.
If N basis functions are desired
in an arbitrary region, then N basis points are chosen at random
in the region. Each point in the region is assigned to the nearest
basis point. The basis points are then adjusted by taking the
average of the associated points. If this process is repeated, the
basis points will arrange themselves into generators of a centroidal
Voronoi tessellation of the region.
