### Discovering New Physics with Voronoi Tessellations *[Cross-Listing]*

High energy experimental data can be viewed as a sampling of the relevant phase space. We point out that one can apply Voronoi tessellations in order to understand the underlying probability distributions in this phase space. Interesting features in the data can then be discovered by studying the properties of the ensemble of Voronoi cells. For illustration, we demonstrate the detection of kinematic "edges" in two dimensions, which may signal physics beyond the standard model. We motivate the algorithm with some analytical results derived for perfect lattices, and show that the method is further improved with the addition of a few Voronoi relaxation steps via Lloyd's method.
