Dear LAMMPS users ,

I have a question about voronoi/atom command.

As you know the Voronoi construction yields neighborhood relations like this :

*(two disks i and j are neighbors if the midpoint of the line connecting their centers is closer to i and j than to any other disk )*

Is this definition exactly the second quantity that voronoi/atom command can calculate or not ?

Thanks for your attention.

Regards,

Saeed.

Dear Axel , Thanks for your reply .

When I use voronoi/atom command for a hex two dimensional system the second quantity of this command gives 8 !

from doc page : The second is the number of faces of the Voronoi cell, which is also the number of nearest neighbors of the atom in the middle of the cell.

so I think it has to be 6 , Is it right ?!

that last statement only applies to 3d systems.

no.
