Circle Packing Explorations


Circle packing can be seen as the art of placing tangent circles on the plane, leaving as little unoccupied space as possible. Circle packing is a very attractive field of mathematics, from several points of view. It contains interesting and complex questions, both mathematical and algorithmical, and keeps its properties through a wide range of geometric transformations. There are several ways to obtain and modify circle packing structures, giving rise to an infinity of patterns.
