Codes Available for Use

We have made available several computer codes used in our research projects related to packing of hard spheres and ellipsoids in low dimensions and sphere packings in high dimensions.

    The Lubachevsky-Stillinger molecular dynamics algorithm is used to produce a dense packing of monodisperse disks within a squarefundamental cell with periodic boundary conditions. The dimensionless growth rate is 0.01. The initial condition was generated via RSA at a packing fraction of 0.10

  • An animation of the TJ algorithm packing a system of 100 monodisperse disks (August 18th, 2014)

    The Torquato-Jiao ("TJ") sphere packing protocol is used to produce a collectively-jammed packing of 100 monodisperse spheres inside a fixed square fundamental cell with periodic boundary conditions. The initial condition was generated via RSA at a packing fraction of 0.10
