Abstract

We give a definition of the Delaunay triangulation of a point set in a closed Euclidean d-manifold, i.e. a compact quo-tient space of the Euclidean space for a discrete group of isometries (a so-called Bieberbach group or crystallographic group). We describe a geometric criterion to check whether a partition of the manifold actually forms a triangulation (which subsumes that it is a simplicial complex). We pro-vide an algorithm to compute the Delaunay triangulation of the manifold for a given set of input points, if it exists. Oth-erwise, the algorithm returns the Delaunay triangulation of a finitely-sheeted covering space of the manifold. The al-gorithm has optimal randomized worst-case time and space complexity. Whereas there was prior work for the special case of the flat torus, as far as we know this is the first result for general closed Euclidean d-manifolds. This research is motivated by application fields, like computational biology for instance, showing a need to perform simulations in quotient spaces of the Euclidean space by more general groups of isometries than the groups generated by d independent translations.
