What’s the most dense way to pack a collection of curves into a finite volume container subject to a uniform “thickness” constraint on the curves? We’ll explore what’s known (a little) or unknown (a lot) about this question, discuss a number of putatively-optimal examples which illustrate the subtleties, and make some conjectures about what to expect about the optimal configurations “almost everywhere”!
