 CGAL 4.7 - 2D and Surface Function Interpolation
CGAL::natural_neighbor_coordinates_2()

The functions natural_neighbor_coordinates_2() compute natural neighbor coordinates, also called Sibson's coordinates, for 2D points provided a two-dimensional triangulation and a query point in the convex hull of the vertices of the triangulation.

Requirements

1. Dt are equivalent to the class Delaunay_triangulation_2<Traits, Tds>.
2. The traits class Traits of Dt is a model of the concept DelaunayTriangulationTraits_2. Only the following members of this traits class are used:
• Construct_circumcenter_2
• FT
• Point_2
• construct_circumcenter_2_object
• Additionally, Traits must meet the requirements for the traits class of the polygon_area_2() function.
3. The value type of OutputIterator is equivalent to std::pair<Dt::Point_2, Dt::Geom_traits::FT>, i.e., a pair associating a point and its natural neighbor coordinate.

Implementation

This function computes the area of the sub-cells stolen from the Voronoi cells of the points in dt when inserting p. The total area of the Voronoi cell of p is also computed and returned by the function. If p lies outside the convex hull, the coordinate values cannot be computed and the third value of the result triple is set to false.

## Function Documentation

template<class Dt , class OutputIterator >
 CGAL::Triple CGAL::natural_neighbor_coordinates_2 ( const Dt & dt, const typename Dt::Geom_traits::Point_2 & p, OutputIterator out, typename Dt::Face_handle start = typename Dt::Face_handle() )

computes the natural neighbor coordinates for p with respect to the points in the two-dimensional Delaunay triangulation dt.

Template Parameters
 Dt must be of type Delaunay_triangulation_2. OutputIterator must have the value type std::pair.

The sequence of point/coordinate pairs that is computed by the function is placed starting at out. The function returns a triple with an iterator that is placed past-the-end of the resulting sequence of point/coordinate pairs, the normalization factor of the coordinates and a Boolean value which is set to true iff the coordinate computation was successful.

#include <CGAL/natural_neighbor_coordinates_2.h>

Examples:
Interpolation/linear_interpolation_2.cpp, Interpolation/nn_coordinates_2.cpp, and Interpolation/sibson_interpolation_2.cpp.
template<class Dt , class OutputIterator , class EdgeIterator >
 CGAL::Triple< OutputIterator, typename Dt::Geom_traits::FT, bool > CGAL::natural_neighbor_coordinates_2 ( const Dt & dt, const typename Dt::Geom_traits::Point_2 & p, OutputIterator out, EdgeIterator hole_begin, EdgeIterator hole_end )

The same as above.

The iterator range [hole_begin, hole_end) determines the boundary edges of the conflict zone of p in the triangulation. It is the result of the function dt.get_boundary_of_conflicts(p,std::back_inserter(hole), start).

template<class Dt , class OutputIterator >
 CGAL::Triple< OutputIterator, typename Dt::Geom_traits::FT, bool > CGAL::natural_neighbor_coordinates_2 ( const Dt & dt, typename Dt::Vertex_handle vh, OutputIterator out )

computes the natural neighbor coordinates of the point vh->point() with respect to the vertices of dt excluding vh->point().

The same as above for the remaining parameters.
