min_dist: float

The minimal distance between any two positions

xmax_ini: float, optional

The initial maximal distance of any coordinates

growth: float

The growth factor of the initial radius, must be greater 1

seed: int, optional

The random seed

verbosity: int

The verbosity level. 0 = silent


xy: numpy.ndarray
