Universally optimal distribution of points on spheres

- Henry Cohn, Abhinav Kumar
- Mathematics
- 19 July 2006

We study configurations of points on the unit sphere that minimize potential energy for a broad class of potential functions (viewed as functions of the squared Euclidean distance between points).… Expand

New upper bounds on sphere packings I

- Henry Cohn, N. Elkies
- Mathematics
- 1 October 2001

We continue the study of the linear programming bounds for sphere packing introduced by Cohn and Elkies. We use theta series to give another proof of the principal theorem, and present some related… Expand

A variational principle for domino tilings

- Henry Cohn, R. Kenyon, J. Propp
- Mathematics
- 30 August 2000

1.1. Description of results. A domino is a 1 x 2 (or 2 x 1) rectangle, and a tiling of a region by dominos is a way of covering that region with dominos so that there are no gaps or overlaps. In… Expand

The sphere packing problem in dimension 24

- Henry Cohn, Abhinav Kumar, S. Miller, D. Radchenko, M. Viazovska
- Mathematics
- 21 March 2016

Building on Viazovska's recent solution of the sphere packing problem in eight dimensions, we prove that the Leech lattice is the densest packing of congruent spheres in twenty-four dimensions and… Expand

The Shape of a Typical Boxed Plane Partition

- Henry Cohn, M. Larsen, J. Propp
- Mathematics
- 13 January 1998

Using a calculus of variations approach, we determine the shape of a typical plane partition in a large box (i.e., a plane partition chosen at random according to the uniform distribution on all… Expand

Local statistics for random domino tilings of the Aztec diamond

- Henry Cohn, N. Elkies, J. Propp
- Mathematics
- 1 October 1996

We prove an asymptotic formula for the probability that, if one chooses a domino tiling of a large Aztec diamond at random according to the uniform distribution on such tilings, the tiling will… Expand
