Renaissance Packings is a new text under development by Thomas Bewley, Paul Belitz, and Joe Cessna, and will be published in summer 2013 by Renaissance Press. This text describes the elegant and rich field of n-dimensional sphere packings, and explores both the classic application of this subject in the field of coding theory [used, for example, for storage of digital information in Random Access Memory (RAM) and Redundant Arrays of Disks (RAID], as well as emerging applications in the fields af derivative-free optimization and graph theory for computational interconnects.
Along with the release of this text, we will also be releasing a related and intruiging toy, in collaboration with a major toy manufacturer. Stay tuned!
