Statistics Seminars: Random car parking and sphere packing

Presented by Mathew Penrose (University of Durham),

24 January 2001 14:00 in CM221

"In Random Sequential Adsorption, each successive particle is deposited uniformly at random onto a d-dimensional region, subject to non-overlap with predecessors. Chemists and others have made numerous simulation studies for d=2, but rigorous theory (the Renyi car-parking model) has been limited to d=1. We describe recent work trying to redress this imbalance."
