Quote:X4.5 Where have these terms - Delaunay, Voronoi - come from and how to X pronounce them?XX Such questions arise regularly in the newsgroups such asX sci.math.num-analysis or comp.graphics.algorithms.X Delaunay and Voronoi are probably two biggest names in computationalX geometry. Delaunay was a math professor at Moscow University in 20- X 30-ies(?). He seems to be of a French descent. There are no RussianX name which have similar spelling, while it is a fairly frequent FrenchX name [de - la -'ne]. This is quite possible, since there were quite a lotX of French settled in Russia after French Revolution and in 19-th century.X Voronoi worked in Germany and in France at the beginning of thisX century. It is interesting to note that in contrast to Delaunay heX probably was of Russian origin. This is a typical Russian word and name X pronounced [vo-ro-'noy]. It means "raven" (color, typically of a horse).X These names are connected with a fundamental partition of a domain -X Delaunay triangulation and Voronoi tesselation. This partition andX discovery of its many properties is also connected with other names - X such as Dirichle and Thiessen.
