Accordingly, we may speak of a barycentric subdivision [??] of K as the simplicial complex with vertices the barycenters of the simplices of K, and whose simplices are finite non-empty collections of barycentres of simplices totally ordered by the face relations of K.

The [k.sub.i] are called the barycentric coordinates of k.
This is more efficient than a call to INTRC1, but requires that the triangle and barycentric of the point be specified.
To mention only a few: relativistic effects, Barycentric Dynamical Time, measurement of Atomic Time, clock synchronization by very-long-baseline interferometry, planetary terms in nutation (used only for arc-millisecond accuracy!), the FK5 system, laser ranging, and rotation parameters for satellites of the planets.
There are several references related to polynomial Hermite interpolation in one and several variables, including barycentric implementations; cf.
Figure 3 indicates that the imputation sets and corresponding cores in barycentric coordinates are calculated by TUGlab package [35].
The dual grid of a simplicial mesh can be chosen based on a barycentric subdivision, or in some cases, based on a Delaunay-Voronoi construction [24].
The arctic boundary is shown in Figure 7 after the change to barycentric coordinates [alpha] = a/(1 - a - b), [beta] = b/(1 - a - b).
