## Definition

The Voronoi domain (or 'cell', or 'region') is the name given in mathematics to the Wigner-Seitz cell. Voronoi domains are in the form of polyhedra and are classified according to their topological properties; one distinguishes five types of Voronoi polyhedra (see Section 3.1.2.3 of *International Tables for Crystallography, Volume A*, 6th edition).
