The 3rd variation of this definitive and well known ebook maintains to pursue the query: what's the most productive option to pack various equivalent spheres in n-dimensional Euclidean house? The authors additionally study such comparable matters because the kissing quantity challenge, the protecting challenge, the quantizing challenge, and the class of lattices and quadratic kinds. there's additionally an outline of the purposes of those inquiries to different components of arithmetic and technological know-how reminiscent of quantity concept, coding idea, workforce thought, analogue-to-digital conversion and knowledge compression, n-dimensional crystallography, twin conception and superstring thought in physics. New and of precise curiosity is a record on a few fresh advancements within the box, and an up to date and enlarged supplementary bibliography with over 800 goods.
