    Default neighbourlist

    Hey

    i jst developed a basic model for finding neighbours.

    the program runs a for loop to generate x,y arrays randomly .
    x[] has x coordinates
    y[] has y coordinates

    of the nodes.

    then using two for loops i calculate the distance between two nodes for each node.
    if the dist< range i want to put the other node in my neigboutlist.

    Since i have the coordinates of a node and its neighbours ,please suggest me how can i store and reference them in an organized way??

    Java is object-oriented, so I'd suggest created classes that define the data structure you need. For what its worth, there may be other methods to more efficiently accomplish what you need, for example a kd-tree.

    The java.awt.geom.Point2D class can do all this for you, but assuming you want to write the algorithms yourself, why not start with a Node class containing the X & Y ordinates?
