About the writer: Karoly Bezdek acquired his Dr.rer.nat.(1980) and Habilitation (1997) levels in arithmetic from the Eötvös Loránd collage, in Budapest and his Candidate of Mathematical Sciences (1985) and physician of Mathematical Sciences (1994) levels from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences. he's the writer of greater than a hundred learn papers and at the moment he's professor and Canada learn Chair of arithmetic on the college of Calgary. in regards to the publication: This multipurpose e-book can function a textbook for a semester lengthy graduate point direction giving a short creation to Discrete Geometry. It can even function a examine monograph that leads the reader to the frontiers of the newest examine advancements within the classical middle a part of discrete geometry. eventually, the forty-some chosen examine difficulties provide an excellent probability to exploit the e-book as a brief challenge booklet geared toward complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars in addition to researchers. The textual content is situated round 4 significant and by means of now classical difficulties in discrete geometry. the 1st is the matter of densest sphere packings, which has greater than a hundred years of mathematically wealthy heritage. the second one significant issue is sometimes quoted less than the nearly 50 years previous illumination conjecture of V. Boltyanski and H. Hadwiger. The 3rd subject is on protecting via planks and cylinders with emphases at the affine invariant model of Tarski's plank challenge, which used to be raised by way of T. Bang greater than 50 years in the past. The fourth subject is founded round the Kneser-Poulsen Conjecture, which is also nearly 50 years previous. All 4 subject matters witnessed very contemporary leap forward effects, explaining their significant position during this book.

Recall that Svold (. . ) denotes the spherical Lebesgue measure on Sd , and recall that (d + 1)ωd+1 = Svold (Sd ). 4 If K is a spherically convex body in Sd , d ≥ 2, then Svold (K) ≤ (d + 1)ωd+1 r(K). π Equality holds if and only if K is a lune. 3 as follows. If B = Sd ; that is, the spherically convex bodies K1 , . . , Kn cover Sd , then n Svold (Ki ) ≤ (d + 1)ωd+1 ≤ i=1 (d + 1)ωd+1 π n r(Ki ), i=1 and the stated inequality follows. In general, when B is different from Sd , let B ⊂ Sd be the spherical ball of radius π − r(B) centered at the point antipodal to the center of B.

5 If a convex body K in Ed , d ≥ 2 is covered by the planks n P1 , P2 , . . , Pn , then i=1 wC (Pi ) ≥ wC (K) for any convex body C in Ed . 6 Let K and C be convex bodies in Ed , d ≥ 2. If K is sliced by n − 1 hyperplanes, then the minimum of the greatest C-inradius of the pieces is equal to the nth successive C-inradius of K; that is, it is rC (K, n). A. 6 for successive hyperplane cuts. 7 Let K and C be convex bodies in Ed , d ≥ 2. , rC (K, n)). An optimal partition is achieved by n − 1 parallel hyperplane cuts equally spaced along the minimal C-width of the rC (K, n)C-rounded body of K.

More concretely, a circle packing in the plane of constant curvature is called solid if no finite subset of the circles can be rearranged such that the rearranged circles together with the rest of the circles form a packing not congruent to the original. An (easy) example for solid circle packings is the family of incircles of a regular tiling {p, 3} for any p ≥ 3. In fact, a closer look at this example led L. Fejes T´oth [140] to the following simple sounding but difficult problem: he conjectured that the incircles of a regular tiling {p, 3} form a strongly solid packing for any p ≥ 5; that is, by removing any circle from the packing the remaining circles still form a solid packing.
