QuoteOriginally posted by: wannabequantieYes i know about this book, though i don't think this is the stuff you're looking for. Circle packing is really the study of discrete conformal mappings. You can prove analogues of theorems from complex analysis, like schwarz lemma, riemann mapping theorem etc. This is very different from sphere packings which seems to be more like what you're after? If you want to read more about circle packings check out ken stephenson page http://www.math.utk.edu/~kens/
. He has lots of very nice papers you can download. Hope that helps.Actually, believe it or not I want to pack circles The application is not QF-related at all. The good examples I want to do are on pages 5 and 77.I reckon however that some of the maths could be used in QF (complex numbers).Thanks for tip on the articles.
