Are large two-dimensional clusters of perimeter-minimizing bubbles of equal-area hexagonal or circular?

By S. J. Cox, F. Morgan and F. Graner

Abstract

A computer study of clusters of up to 200,000 equal-area bubbles shows for the first time that rounding conjectured optimal hexagonal planar soap bubble clusters reduces perimeter.Comment: 10 pages, 9 figure
