CVT_SQUARE_UNIFORM
Centroidal Voronoi Tesselation in Square with Uniform Density


CVT_SQUARE_UNIFORM is a MATLAB program which iteratively calculates a Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation (CVT) in a square with uniform density.

As you watch the CVT develop, for instance, you will be able to guess something about the angle of intersection between the boundaries of the region, and the edges of Voronoi regions.

CVT_SQUARE_UNIFORM works in a square with a uniform density. The function starts from a random initial configuration. Another step of the CVT iteration is carried out each time the user hits RETURN. The MATLAB routines trimesh() and voronoi() are used to simultaneously display the Voronoi diagram and Delaunay triangulation associated with the generators. Moreover, the nearest-neighbor search and centroid computation are carried out efficiently using MATLAB's Delaunay search and rapid array accumulation. The calling sequence is:

[ p, t ] = cvt_square_uniform ( n, sample_num, delaunay_display )
