Centroidal Voronoi tessellations (CVTs)
are special Voronoi diagrams for which the
generators of the diagrams are also the
centers of mass (with respect to a given
density function) of the Voronoi cells.
CVTs have many uses and applications,
several of which we discuss. These may
include data compression, image segmentation,
clustering, cell biology, territorial
behavior of animals, resource allocation,
grid generation in volumes and on surfaces,
meshless computing, hypercube sampling,
and reduced-order modeling. We
also discuss deterministic and probabilistic
methods for determining CVTs.
