Bounds for Covering Symmetric Convex Bodies by a Lattice Congruent to a Given Lattice

  •  Beomjong Kwak    


In this paper, we focus on lattice covering of centrally symmetric convex body on $\mathbb{R}^2$. While there is no constraint on the lattice in many other results about lattice covering, in this study, we only consider lattices congruent to a given lattice to retain more information on the lattice. To obtain some upper bounds on the infimum of the density of such covering, we will say a body is a coverable body with respect to a lattice if such lattice covering is possible, and try to suggest a function of a given lattice such that any centrally symmetric convex body whose area is not less than the function is a coverable body. As an application of this result, we will suggest a theorem which enables one to apply this to a coverable body to suggesting an efficient lattice covering for general sets, which may be non-convex and may have holes.
