Many physical systems can be studied as collections of particles embedded in space, often evolving in time. Natural questions arise concerning how to characterize these arrangements—are they ordered or disordered? If they are ordered, how are they ordered and what kinds of defects do they possess? Voronoi tessellations, originally introduced to study problems in pure mathematics, have become a powerful and versatile tool for analyzing countless problems in pure and applied physics. We explain… 


Global field reconstruction from sparse sensors with Voronoi tessellation-assisted deep learning
This work considers the use of Voronoi tessellation to obtain a structured-grid representation from sensor locations enabling the computationally tractable use of convolutional neural networks and opens a new pathway towards the practical use of neural networks for real-time global estimation.
The Voronoi tessellation method in astronomy.
The Voronoi tessellation is a natural way of space segmentation, which has many applications in various fields of science and technology, as well as in social sciences and visual art. The varieties
Voronoi chains, blocks, and clusters in perturbed square lattices
Perturbed lattices provide simple models for studying many physical systems. In this paper we study the distribution of Voronoi chains, blocks, and clusters with prescribed combinatorial features in

A quantitative understanding of the microscopic constraints which underlie a well relaxed glassy structure is the key to developing a microscopic theory of structural evolution and plasticity for the
Introduction to molecular dynamics simulations
An introduction to molecular dynamics simulations in the context of the Kob-Andersen model of a glass is provided and a complete set of tools for doing and analyzing the results of simulations at fixed NVE and NVT are introduced.
Robust Encoding of a Qubit in a Molecule
We construct quantum error-correcting codes that embed a finite-dimensional code space in the infinite-dimensional Hilbert state space of rotational states of a rigid body. These codes, which protect
On the Constitution of Metallic Sodium. II
Previous developments in the theory of metals may be divided clearly into two parts: that based principally upon the hypothesis of free electrons and dealing with conductivity properties, and that
Atomistic structural mechanism for the glass transition: Entropic contribution
A popular Adam--Gibbs scenario has suggested that the excess entropy of glass and liquid over crystal dominates the dynamical arrest at the glass transition with exclusive contribution from
