SEMINAR: Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Classic problems of packing in 2d, 3d and on a cylinder
|Groups and Combinatorics Seminar, Classic problems of packing in 2d, 3d and on a cylinder
Gledden Visiting Fellow, Institute for Advanced Studies, UWA
School of Physics, Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland
will speak on
Classic problems of packing in 2d, 3d and on a cylinder
at 3pm Friday May the 16th in Weatherburn Lecture Theatre.
Some classic problems of optimal packing are reviewed: the Kepler Problem, the Kelvin Problem, and cylindrical packings of spheres and disks. The latter are tentatively associated with the celebrated phenomenon of spiral Phyllotaxis, much in evidence in the splendid gardens of UWA. If the speaker omits or forgets anything, it is to be found in the book Pursuit of Perfect Packing, T. Aste and D. Weaire, 2nd Edition.
