*Editorial reviews*

Publisher Synopsis

From the reviews:"The present volume actually surveys packing and covering problems in Euclidean space and close cousins. ... Bezdek ... surveys the state of the art, best results, and outstanding conjectures for a host of problems. ... Summing Up: Recommended. Academic audiences, upper-division undergraduates through researchers/faculty." (D. V. Feldman, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)"The book is intended for graduate students interested in discrete geometry. The book provides a road map to the state-of-the-art of several topics in discrete geometry. It can also serve as a textbook for a graduate level course or a seminar. Additionally, the book is extremely current, with many references to as late as 2009-2010 publications." (Alex Bogomolny, The Mathematical Association of America, August, 2010)"This very interesting monograph contains a selection of topics in discrete geometry, mainly those on which the author and his collaborators have worked. ... The many conjectures and problems to be found throughout the text will serve as an inspiration to many discrete geometers." (Konrad Swanepoel, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1207, 2011) Read more...
