# Circle Packing : A Mathematical Tale

@inproceedings{Stephenson2003CircleP, title={Circle Packing : A Mathematical Tale}, author={Kenneth Stephenson}, year={2003} }

1376 NOTICES OF THE AMS VOLUME 50, NUMBER 11 T he circle is arguably the most studied object in mathematics, yet I am here to tell the tale of circle packing, a topic which is likely to be new to most readers. These packings are configurations of circles satisfying preassigned patterns of tangency, and we will be concerned here with their creation, manipulation, and interpretation. Lest we get off on the wrong foot, I should caution that this is NOT twodimensional “sphere” packing: rather than… CONTINUE READING
