Building Technion Charles Radin is a Professor of Mathematics
at the University of Texas at Austin, and a Fellow of the American
Mathematical Society. He is wellknown for his fundamental work on packings, tilings, dynamics and
mathematical physics. His research interests include Hilbert's
eighteenth problem  understanding the symmetry of optimally dense packings, of spheres or polyhedra,
in Euclidean and hyperbolic spaces, including aperiodic tilings
such as the pinwheel tiling and the Penrose tiling. He is also
interested in the closely related physics problem of the origin of structure
in high density/low energy matter, which he studies using probabilistic
models of spheres packing. Another topic he is interested in is phase
transitions in
various exotic materials in and out of thermal equilibrium, for instance soft
matter such as sand piles, as well as quasicrystals.
He has recently been applying similar ideas to random networks and graph
theory.
