`d` |

`cases` |
A vector of length |

`cstar` |
A non-negative integer indicating the minimum number of cases to include in each window. |

Using the distances provided in `d`

, for each
observation, the nearest neighbors are included in
increasingly larger windows until at least `cstar`

cases are included in the window. Each row of `d`

is matched with the same position in `cases`

.

Returns the indices of the regions in each case window as a list. For each element of the list, the indices are ordered from nearest to farthest from each centroid (and include the starting region).
