A ug 2 01 4 New Lower Bound for the Optimal Ball Packing Density of Hyperbolic 4-space ∗
In this paper we consider ball packings in 4-dimensional hyperbolic space. We show that it is possible to exceed the conjectured 4-dimensional realizable packing density upper bound due to L.
Horoball packings related to the 4-dimensional hyperbolic 24 cell honeycomb {3,4,3,4}
In this paper we study the horoball packings related to the hyperbolic 24 cell honeycomb by Coxeter-Schläfli symbol {3, 4, 3, 4} in the extended hyperbolic 4-spaceH where we allow horoballs in
Upper bound of density for packing of congruent hyperballs in hyperbolic $3-$space
In \cite{Sz17-2} we proved that to each saturated congruent hyperball packing exists a decomposition of $3$-dimensional hyperbolic space $\mathbb{H}^3$ into truncated tetrahedra. Therefore, in order
New Lower Bound for the Optimal Ball Packing Density in Hyperbolic 4-Space
It is shown that it is possible to exceed the conjectured 4-dimensional realizable packing density upper bound due to L. Fejes-Tóth (Regular Figures, Macmillian, New York, 1964).
Tessellations of hyperbolic surfaces
A finite subset S of a closed hyperbolic surface F canonically determines a "centered dual decomposition" of F: a cell structure with vertex set S, geodesic edges, and 2-cells that are unions of the
Optimal Horoball Packing Densities for Koszul-type tilings in Hyperbolic $3$-space
A BSTRACT . We determine the optimal horoball packing densities for the Koszul-type Coxeter simplex tilings in H 3 . We give a family of horoball packings parameterized by the Busemann function and
Coverings with horo- and hyperballs generated by simply truncated orthoschmes
After having investigated the packings derived by horo- and hyperballs related to simple frustum Coxeter orthoscheme tilings we consider the corresponding covering problems (briefly hyp-hor
The ratio of homology rank to hyperbolic volume, I
We show that for every finite-volume hyperbolic 3-manifold M and every prime p we have dimH1(M ;Fp) < 168.05 · volM . This improves on a result proved by Agol, Leininger and Margalit giving the same
Volumetric Discrete Geometry
Five Essays on the Geometry of László Fejes Tóth
In this paper we consider the following topics related to results of Laszlo Fejes Toth: (1) The Tammes problem and Fejes Toth’s bound on circle packings; (2) Fejes Toth’s problem on maximizing the

Let Sn denote the “surface” of an n-dimensional unit sphere in Euclidean space of n dimensions. We may suppose that the sphere is centred at the origin of coordinates O, so that the points P(x1, x2,
