Anisotropic centroidal voronoi tessellations and their applications

By Qiang Du and Desheng Wang


Abstract. In this paper, we introduce a novel definition of the anisotropic centroidal Voronoi tessellation (ACVT) corresponding to a given Riemann metric tensor. A directional distance function is used in the definition to simplify the computation. We provide algorithms to approximate the ACVT using the Lloyd iteration and the construction of anisotropic Delaunay triangulation under the given Riemannian metric. The ACVT is applied to the optimization of two-dimensional anisotropic Delaunay triangulation, to the generation of surface CVT, and high-quality triangular mesh on general surfaces. Various numerical examples demonstrating the effectiveness of the proposed method are presented
