‘How are neighborhoods defined?’
Types of Neighborhoods
Types of neighborhood are used:
Neighborhood: This is the default Neighborhood for the lattice. It ist used by the
NeighborhoodReporterand fallback for all other Neighborhood definitions.
Neighborhood: Updates for the CPM simulation are chosen from this Neighborhood.
Neighborhood: Cell surface length and interface lengths of cell interactons are approximated using this kernel.
Order and Distance
The number of neighboring nodes to include can be specified in two different units.
All neighboring nodes of distance less or equal the given distane are included in the neighborhood.
The “order” of a neighborhood is a measure of neighborhood size that expands in an alternating way axially and radially.
In a square lattice:
- Order 1: 4-member, axial (von Neumann)
- Order 2: 8-member, radial (Moore)
- Order 3: 12-member, axial
