Critical Point Theory of the Distance to a Point Sample and Applications in Geometric Modeling

Structuring finite point sets is at the heart of computational geometry since such point sets naturally arise in many applications. Examples in three dimensional space are point sets sampled from the surface of a solid or the locations of the atoms in a molecule. A first step in further processing these point sets is to structure them in some data structure. The choice of the data structure of course depends on the application. Structuring the point set into a simplicial complex like the Delaunay triangulation (or its dual the Voronoi diagram) has turned out to be appropriate for many modeling tasks. In a sequence of papers we developed an alternative data structure, proved some of its properties and showed that it is suited for some modeling tasks.
