Title: Packing and Covering on the Sphere
Speaker: Michael Swearingin (Graduate Student, Case Western Reserve University MAMS Department)
Abstract: We will survey the classical results on packing and covering on the Euclidean sphere in Rn. We will focus on establishing the almost optimal (asymptotic) upper bound on covering the sphere with smaller balls that is due to Rogers with recent improvements by Dumer.
Note: This is a somewhat non-standard time for this seminar.
