Dense sphere packings : a blueprint for formal proofs by Thomas Callister Hales( )

18 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 863 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 400-year-old Kepler conjecture asserts that no packing of congruent balls in three dimensions can have a density exceeding the familiar pyramid-shaped cannonball arrangement. In this book, a new proof of the conjecture is presented that makes it accessible for the first time to a broad mathematical audience. The book also presents solutions to other previously unresolved conjectures in discrete geometry, including the strong dodecahedral conjecture on the smallest surface area of a Voronoi cell in a sphere packing. This book is also currently being used as a blueprint for a large-scale formal proof project, which aims to check every logical inference of the proof of the Kepler conjecture by computer. This is an indispensable resource for those who want to be brought up to date with research on the Kepler conjecture"--Page 4 of cover
The Kepler conjecture : the Hales-Ferguson proof by Thomas Hales, Samuel Ferguson by Jeffrey C Lagarias( )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in English and held by 415 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Kepler conjecture, one of geometry's oldest unsolved problems, was formulated in 1611 by Johannes Kepler and mentioned by Hilbert in his famous 1900 problem list. The Kepler conjecture states that the densest packing of three-dimensional Euclidean space by equal spheres is attained by the ""cannonball"" packing. In a landmark result, this was proved by Thomas C. Hales and Samuel P. Ferguson, using an analytic argument completed with extensive use of computers. This book centers around six papers, presenting the detailed proof of the Kepler conjecture given by Hales and Ferguson, published
The subregular germ of orbital integrals by Thomas Callister Hales( Book )

8 editions published between 1986 and 1992 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An integral formula for the subregular germ of a [italic small capital]K-orbital integral is developed. The formula holds for any reductive group over a [italic]p-adic field of characteristic zero. This expression of the subregular germ is obtained by applying Igusa's theory of asymptotic expansions. The integral formula is applied to the question of the transfer of a [italic small capital]K-orbital integral to an endoscopic group. It is shown that the quadratic characters arising in the subregular germs are compatible with the transfer. Details of the transfer are given for the subregular germ of unitary groups
