 OFFSET 0,1 COMMENTS Density of densest packing of equal circles in two dimensions (achieved for example by the A2 lattice). The number gives the areal coverage (90.68.. percent) of the close hexagonal (densest) packing of circles in the plane. The hexagonal unit cell is a rhombus of side length 1 and height sqrt(3)/2; the area of the unit cell is sqrt(3)/2 and the four parts of circles add to an area of one circle of radius 1/2, which is Pi/4. - R.
