Lattice packings through division algebras

  title={Lattice packings through division algebras},
  author={N. Gargava},
In this text, we will show the existence of lattice packings in a sparse family of dimensions. This construction will be a generalization of Venkatesh’s lattice packing result [1]. In our construction, we replace the appearance of the cyclotomic number field with a division algebra over the rational field. This improves the best known lattice packing bounds in many dimensions.

Optimality and uniqueness of the Leech lattice among lattices
We prove that the Leech lattice is the unique densest lattice in R24. The proof combines human reasoning with computer verification of the properties of certain explicit polynomials. We furthermoreExpand
Improved sphere packing lower bounds from Hurwitz lattices
Abstract In this paper we prove an asymptotic lower bound for the sphere packing density in dimensions divisible by four. This asymptotic lower bound improves on previous asymptotic bounds by aExpand
A Note on Sphere Packings in High Dimension
We improve on the lower bounds for the optimal density of sphere packings. In all sufficiently large dimensions the improvement is by a factor of at least 10, 000; along a sparse sequence ofExpand
