A July 2007 symposium brought together researchers from many disciplines to present the latest developments and applications of Voronoi diagrams, a type of data structure in computational geometry (mathematics) computational geometry - The study of algorithms for combinatorial, topological, and metric problems concerning sets of points, typically in Euclidean space. Representative areas of research include geometric search, convexity, proximity, intersection, and linear programming. . Key topics for the symposium were theoretical aspects of Voronoi diagrams, computational and implementation aspects of Voronoi diagrams, generalization of Voronoi diagrams, Voronoi art, and applications of the Voronoi/Delaunay methodology to other areas. Papers from the symposium are presented here, covering specific topics such as greedy beta-skeletons in three dimensions, high-order Voronoi sculpture, and the role of quasi-regular tetrahedra in dense ordered packings of hard spheres Hard spheres are widely used as model particles in the statistical mechanical theory of fluids and solids. They are defined simply as impenetrable spheres that cannot overlap in space. . Other subjects examined include a new algorithm in geometry of numbers In number theory, the geometry of numbers is a topic and method arising from the work of Hermann Minkowski, on the relationship between convex sets and lattices in n-dimensional space. , variants of a jump flooding algorithm for computing discrete Voronoi diagrams, and Voronoi tessellations, spatial patterns, and clustering across the universe. There is no subject index.
