The local-global principle for integral soddy sphere packings

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Fix an integral Soddy sphere packing P. Let B be the set of all bends in P. A number n is called represented if n (Formula presented) B, that is, if there is a sphere in P with bend equal to n. A number n is called admissible if it is everywhere locally represented, meaning that n (Formula presented) B(mod q) for all q. It is shown that every sufficiently large admissible number is represented.
