Bug#835367: ITP: voro++ -- library for the computation of the Voronoi diagram

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Roger Wesson <rw@nebulousresearch.org>

* Package name    : voro++
  Version         : 0.4.6
  Upstream Author : Chris Rycroft <chr@seas.harvard.edu>
* URL             : http://math.lbl.gov/voro++
* License         : BSD
  Programming Lang: C++
  Description     : library for the computation of the Voronoi diagram

Voro++ is a software library for carrying out three-dimensional computations of the Voronoi tessellation. A distinguishing feature of the Voro++ library is that it carries out cell-based calculations, computing the Voronoi cell for each particle individually. It is particularly well-suited for applications that rely on cell-based statistics, where features of Voronoi cells (eg.  volume, centroid, number of faces) can be used to analyze a system of particles.  

Many codes make use of voro++ and the paper describing it has been cited 250+ times.  I propose to create a package that could be maintained by the Debian Astronomy Team.
