Finite Packing and Covering
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThis book provides an in-depth, state-of-the-art discussion of the theory of finite packings and coverings by convex bodies. It contains various new results and arguments, collects other key data scattered about the literature, and provides a comprehensive treatment of problems whose interplay was not clearly understood prior to this text. Arrangements of congruent convex bodies in Euclidean space are covered, and the density of finite packing and covering by balls in Euclidean, spherical and hyperbolic spaces is considered.

Pressestimmen'Many of the sections end with interesting and stimulating open problems, and each chapter closes with a brief survey of related problems. The material is presented in a clear and concise way. The author has succeeded in providing a unified treatment of all these different threads of finite packing and covering problems. ... All in all, however, this book is a unique and indispensable source for everyone interested in finite packing and covering of convex bodies.'
