CorenBot copyvio question[edit]

The material was split from Packing problem. It was already on wiki, and bears little similarity to the single sentence definition given on this link. I don't think there is any copyvio problem here (and I certainly never used that site as a source). --99of9 (talk) 05:01, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Add a section on proof methods?[edit]

If "Circle packing in a circle" deserves its own page, one should attempt to list some known proof methods too (cf. similar discussion entry in Talk:Packing_problem).

"Trivially optimal"[edit]

Are the 5- and 6- circle cases really "trivially optimal"? Especially with the 6-circle case, I picture a 3x2 rectangular array, or perhaps staggered, as options... they might be pretty clearly bad options, but if I have to think about it, it's not trivial. And how can the 5-circle case be both proved by someone in 1968 and also be trivial? I mean sure, it looks trivial, but by that standard people could argue that for the 19-circle case or whatever.
