Centroidal Voronoi tessellations and optimal Delaunay triangulations can be approximated efficiently by non-linear optimisation algorithms. This paper demonstrates that the point distribution used to initialise the optimisation algorithms is important. Compared to conventional random initialisation, certain low-discrepancy point distributions help convergence towards more spatially regular results and require fewer iterations for planar and volumetric tessellations.
