CCVT_BOX
Animated Constrained CVT Algorithm
CCVT_BOX
is a MATLAB program which
allows the user to specify certain parameters, and then
creates and animates a Constrained Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CCVT)
of points in a 2D box. After each iteration, points near
the boundary are projected onto the boundary.
The data that the user may set includes:

N, the number of points to generate,

NPP, the number of (equally spaced) sample points
to be used along the boundary of the box;

INIT, initialize the points:

file, by reading data from file;

'GRID', picking points from a grid;

'HALTON', from a Halton sequence;

'RAND', using MATLAB's RAND function;

'UNIFORM', using a simple uniform RNG;

IT_MAX, the maximum number of iterations;

IT_FIXED, the number of iterations for which each
set of sample points should be used (between 1 and IT_MAX);

SAMPLE, how to conduct the sampling:

'GRID', picking points from a grid;

'HALTON', from a Halton sequence;

'RAND', using MATLAB's RAND function;

'UNIFORM', using a simple uniform RNG;

SAMPLE_NUM, the number of sampling points:

MOVIE_NAME, the number the animation file to be created.
