What is... sphere packing?

Vortrag von Cynthia Bortolotto

Datum: 10.05.22  Zeit: 16.30 - 17.30  Raum:

In this talk, we will define the sphere packing problem and discuss some its results. We will pay special attention to the solution of the problem in dimensions 8 and 24, given by Maryna Viazovska in 2016. In particular, we shall discuss in detail the construction of Viazovska’s magical functions and its motivation.
