Let F be an algebraic function field of a single variable with the finite field Fq as its full field of constants. We will often make use of this identification when working with lattice vectors by working with the corresponding divisors instead.

Equation 1 above indicates that to maximize the packing density one should take a lattice with the quotient of minimum distance to the determinant as large as possible. In particular, Tsfasman and Vladut consider families of curves for which the packing density of the corresponding lattices is asymptotically good as n grows.

On the other hand, it is well known see, for instance [4] that lattices in Rn with particularly high packing density are usually well-rounded, i. This observation prompted us to ask the following natural question. Question 1. For which algebraic function fields F is the corresponding lattice LP well-rounded? The main goal of this note is to provide the following partial answer to this question.

Theorem 1. Then the corresponding lattice LP is generated by its minimal vectors, and hence well-rounded.

In Section 2 we set the notation and prove several preliminary lemmas on elliptic curves and corresponding function fields, in particular obtaining an explicit description for a generating set of the lattice LP in the case of elliptic curves Theorem 2. We then prove our main results in Section 3. We are now ready to proceed. Notation and preliminary results In this section we establish some necessary preliminaries on elliptic curves. It can be shown [5, Proposition 6. Let P denote the set of places of K E of degree 1.

This place has degree 1 and so belongs to P. This map [5, Proposition 6. We need to distinguish between the operations of the group of divisors and the elliptic curve group law; and we also need to distinguish between places and their corresponding points on the elliptic curve. We do so as follows. Each place P of K E corresponds to a unique point on the elliptic curve defined by any one of the above given equations.

We denote the corresponding point in bold font P. In accordance with the notation introduced above, P denotes the set of places P0 , P1 ,. Proposition 2. Semidefinite programming bounds could be a helpful approach in determining ballpark densities that might be achievable, Vallentin and outside researchers said.

The tool is also helping to chip away at more generalized packing problems. Vallentin and colleagues recently applied their algorithm to find some of the first-ever upper bounds on the densest packing of spheres of two different sizes — a problem relevant to the study of many crystals and to codes in which some messages are more important than others.

They also showed that pentagons cannot fill more than 98 percent of two-dimensional space. Three years ago, Kallus and his collaborators proved that pyramidal objects called tetrahedra cannot fill more than So far, the densest known arrangement, discovered in by Sharon Glotzer and colleagues at the University of Michigan, fills The algorithm would also apply to a variety of other shapes.

Considering the complexity of packing problems in two and three dimensions, how were the Voyager probes able to transmit photos using dimensional codewords? Luckily for NASA, among the smattering of packing problems that have been solved is the special case of lattices of spheres in 24 dimensions.

Discovered in the s by British mathematician John Leech, this snug arrangement of spheres gave the Voyager probes a rich palette of 4, codewords to use during data transmission. But the Leech lattice does more than represent the densest packing of spheres in 24 dimensions.

It belongs to a new class of geometric structures that are the preferred arrangements of objects that interact in a variety of ways, not only ones like spheres that cannot overlap. Consider trying to find the densest packing of circles in a plane.

You might start by drawing a circle in the middle of a piece of paper and fitting as many additional circles around it as possible.

You will soon discover that six circles form a tight hexagon around the central one. This rare feature of the two-dimensional hexagonal lattice — exemplified by the continuous planes of honeycomb that bees build — is shared by the Leech lattice in 24 dimensions and a structure called the E8 lattice in eight dimensions. Though impossible to visualize, these lattices are, mathematically, just as painless to construct.
