|Title:||Stable Quasicrystalline Sphere Packing|
|Published:||March 01, 1999|
|Abstract:||Wills (1990, J. Phys., Paris 51, 1061), found a method relating certain decagonal disk packings to decagonal sphere packings with high packing fractions. Applying this technique to the decagonal rectangle-triangle tiling generated by inflation, we obtain a sphere packing with decagonal symmetry and a packing fraction greater than 0.6953. This is the densest known stable quasicrystalline sphere packing.|
