O. H. Keller conjectured in 1930 that in any tiling of R n by unit n-cubes there exist two of them having a complete facet in common. 0. Perron proved this conjecture for n ≤ 6. We show that for all n ≥ 10 there exists a tiling of R n by unit n-cubes such that no two n-cubes have a complete facet in common

Keller's Conjecture on the Existence of Columns in Cube Tilings of R^n
It is shown that if n<7, then each tiling of R^n by translates of the unit cube [0,1)^n contains a column; that is, a family of the form {[0,1)^n+(s+ke_i): k \in Z}, where s \in R^n, e_i is anExpand

New results on torus cube packings and tilings
We consider the sequential random packing of integral translates of cubes [0, N]n into the torus ℤn/2Nℤn. Two particular cases are of special interest: (1) N = 2, which corresponds to a discrete caseExpand
On the structure of cube tilings and unextendible systems of cubes in low dimensions
TLDR
It is proved that up to dimension 4 each cylinder of a cube tiling contains a column and it is demonstrated by an example that the latter result does not hold in dimension 5. Expand
On the structure of cube tilings and unextendible systems of cubes in low dimensions
We give a structural description of cube tilings and unextendible cube packings of R3. We also prove that up to dimension 4 each cylinder of a cube tiling contains a column and demonstrate by anExpand
Cube-Tilings of Rn and Nonlinear Codes
TLDR
Families of non-lattice tilings of R n by unit cubes are constructed that provide building blocks for the construction of cube-tilings such that no two cubes have a high-dimensional face in common. Expand
Enumerating Cube
Cube tilings formed by n-dimensional 4Zn-periodic hypercubes with side 2 and integer coordinates are considered here. By representing the problem of finding such cube tilings within the framework ofExpand
Fuglede's conjecture is false in 5 and higher dimensions
We give an example of a set Ω ⊂ R 5 which is a finite union of unit cubes, such that L 2 (Ω) admits an orthonormal basis of exponentials { 1 |Ω|1/2 e 2πiξj ·x :
Spectra for cubes in products of finite cyclic groups
We consider "cubes" in products of finite cyclic groups and we study their tiling and spectral properties. (A set in a finite group is called a tile if some of its translates form a partition of theExpand
A Cube Tiling of Dimension Eight with No Facesharing
AbstractA cube tiling of eight-dimensional space in which no pair of cubes share a complete common seven-dimensional face is constructed. Together with a result of Perron, this shows that the firstExpand
