Contains revised and extended versions of the very best papers presented at ISVD 2012
Focuses on recent advancements in geometric algorithms, specifically Voronoi diagrams and their applications
Features a position paper by the guest editor (ISVD 2012 conference chair)
This, the 20th issue of the Transactions on Computational Science journal, edited by Bahman Kalantari, is devoted to the topic of Voronoi Diagrams and their applications. The 10 full papers included in the volume are revised and extended versions of a selection of papers presented at the International Symposium on Voronoi Diagrams 2012, held in Rutgers, NJ, USA, in June 2012. They provide an in-depth overview of current research on topological data structures and a comprehensive evaluation of their applications in the fields of cartography, physics, material modeling, chemistry, GIS, motion planning and computer graphics.
