CirclePack Software
The Java Version 3.0- of CirclePack is available and should run on any platform with Java 1.7++.

Background:

CirclePack is software for creation, manipulation, analysis, and display of circle packings; it handles circle packings having from 4 to the current record of 5,000,000 circles. For more about this topic see "Introduction to Circle Packing: The Theory of Discrete Analytic Functions", KenStephenson, Cambridge University Press, or refer to mypublications.

Thanks to the many people who have helped with development of this program over several years (with my apologies to anyone I might have overlooked). My work with students has resulted in many program features: Tomasz Dubejko, G (Brock) Williams, Woodrow Johnson, Jason Howard, James Ashe, and Gerald Orick. For special programming help: Fedor Andreev, Ben Pack, and Sam Reynolds. Thanks also to the National Science Foundation for supporting my research on circle packing.

Prehistory:
I started developing CirclePack using the C language in the early 1990's, with continual improvements in capability, graphics, and features as the mathematics and its applications evolved. I have always treated the software as an experimental laboratory for discrete conformal geometry and discrete analytic function theory. The original C version of CirclePack ran on X-windows and was abandoned when the GUI XView was no longer viable. I ported the user interface tasks to Java, with most computations and manipulations remaining in a shared C++ library. This worked fine under Linux, and thanks to Fedor Andreev, there was a Windows version. Initial release of software was in 1992. Clickhere for current version.

 

Current Version:
The current release is an all Java version (Java 1.7++). This is a much more capable program and it seems to work on all platforms. There is still a C++ library, but it is used only on certain intensive computations; this is currently available only on Linux.
