# On the Densest Packing of Polycylinders in Any Dimension

Discrete & Computational Geometry, Mar 2016

Using transversality and a dimension reduction argument, a result of Bezdek and Kuperberg is applied to polycylinders, showing that the optimal packing density of $\mathbb {D}^2\times \mathbb {R}^n$ equals $\pi /\sqrt{12}$ for all natural numbers n.
