What is it about?
The nineteenth century Russian mathematician Georgy Voronoi defined a method of dividing a 3D space consisting of points into polyhedra. This is applied here in order to characterize crystal structures.
Why is it important?
In addition to algorithmic details, concepts such as polyhedral volume, complementary Voronoi Polyhedra and topological indices are defined. The approach enables a generalised description of all crystal structures.
