More Optimal Packings of Equal Circles in a Square


The problem of nding the maximum radius of n non-overlapping equal circles in a unit square is considered. A computer-aided method for proving global optimality of such packings is presented. This method is based on recent results by De Groot, Monagan, Peik-ert, and WWrtz. As an example, it is shown how the method can be used to get an optimality proof for… (More)
