If you have a question about this talk, please contact Guillem Perarnau. We explain the basic problems associated with packing spheres of unit radius into n-dimensional space and review known results. Exceptionally symmetrical solutions which occur in 8 and 24 dimensions will be described and the importance of their large groups of symmetries explained. Finally we indicate how the speaker’s methods of generating groups may be applied to the 24-dimensional case.
