# VoronoiMesh

VoronoiMesh[{p1,,pn}]
gives a MeshRegion representing the Voronoi mesh from the points p1, p2, .

VoronoiMesh[{p1,,pn},{{xmin,xmax},}]
clips the mesh to the bounds .

## Details and OptionsDetails and Options

• VoronoiMesh is also known as Voronoi diagram and Dirichlet tessellation.
• The Voronoi mesh consists of n convex cells, each associated with a point pi and defined by , which is the region of points closer to pi than any other point pj for ji.
• The cells associated with the outer points will be unbounded, but only a bounded range will be returned. If no explicit range {{xmin,xmax},} is given, a range is computed automatically.
• The cells will be intervals in 1D, convex polygons in 2D, and convex polyhedra in 3D.
• VoronoiMesh takes the same options as MeshRegion.

### Basic Examples  (2)Basic Examples  (2)

Create a 1D Voronoi mesh from a set of points:

 In[1]:=
 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=

Each point corresponds to a Voronoi cell, which is an interval in the 1D case:

 In[3]:=
 Out[3]=

Create a 2D Voronoi mesh from a set of points:

 In[1]:=
 In[2]:=
 Out[2]=

Each point corresponds to a Voronoi cell:
