cvt, an Octave code which creates Centroidal Voronoi Tessellations (CVT).
The generation of a CVT dataset is of necessity more complicated than for a quasirandom sequence. An iteration is involved, so there must be an initial assignment for the generators, and then a number of iterations. Moreover, in each iteration, estimates must be made of the volume and location of the Voronoi cells. This is typically done by Monte Carlo sampling. The accuracy of the resulting CVT depends in part on the number of sampling points and the number of iterations taken.
The library is mostly used to generate a dataset of points uniformly distributed in the unit hypersquare. However, a user may be interested in computations with other geometries or point densities. To do this, the user needs to replace the USER() routine in the CVT library, and then specify the appropriate values init=3 and sample=3.
The USER routine returns a set of sample points from the region of interest. The default USER routine samples points uniformly from the unit circle. But other geometries are easy to set up. Changing the point density simply requires weighting the sampling in the region.
