Sphere packing in Rn through Graph Theory

In this talk I will demonstrate how graph theoretic tools can be utilized to show that for all sufficiently large n there exist sphere packings in Rn of density at least cn/2n, matching up to a constant factor best known lower bounds for this classical problem of Minkowski.

(Joint work with Simon Litsyn (Tel Aviv Univ.) and Alexander Vardy (Univ. of California at San Diego))
