We construct a volume preserving map U p from the p-ball B p ( r ) = x R 3 , x p r to the regular octahedron B 1 ( r ) , for arbitrary p > 0 . Then we calculate the inverse U p 1 and we also deduce explicit expressions for U and U 1 . This allows us to construct volume preserving maps between arbitrary balls B p ( r ) and B p ( r ˜ ) , and also to map uniform and refinable grids between them. Finally we list some possible applications of our maps. View Full-Text
