Abstract: During the last decades, by applying techniques from Number Theory, Combinatorics and Measure Theory, remarkable progress has been made in the study of deep holes, free planes and related topics in packings of convex bodies, especially in lattice ball packings. Meanwhile, some fascinating new problems have been proposed. To stimulate further research in related areas, we will review the main results, some key techniques and some fundamental problems about deep holes, free cylinders and free planes in this paper.
