USAGE: C = centroid(P)

P = Matrix of convex polyhedron vertices: each row is a vertex, and each column is a dimension.
C = Row vector of centroid coordinates. Each column is a dimension.

(1) This function computes the centroid by partitioning into simplices and determining the weighted sum of their centroids.
(2) Written in response to a question on comp.soft-sys.matlab
