Grid Points Within a 3D Ball

**BALL_GRID**,
a C library which
generates a grid of points
within the interior of an arbitrary ball in 3D.

The library allows the user to define an arbitrary ball by choosing its radius and center. The user also choose N, the number of subintervals into which a horizontal radius line will be subdivided. It then returns the gridpoints defined by that choice.

The computer code and data files described and made available on this web page are distributed under the GNU LGPL license.

**BALL_GRID** is available in
a C version and
a C++ version and
a FORTRAN90 version and
a MATLAB version and
a Python version.
