  • October - A sampling of clusters of a set of polyhedra, each of which packs densely inside a sphere. These clusters are a subset of a larger collection generated using Monte Carlo simulations with spherical confinement. Results show a wide variety of resultant symmetries and structures for clusters of up to 60 constituent polyhedra. (James Proctor, Glotzer Group)
