Publication# Decomposition of a Cube into Nearly Equal Smaller Cubes

Abstract

Let d be a fixed positive integer and let epsilon > 0. It is shown that for every sufficiently large n >= n(0)( d, e), the d-dimensional unit cube can be decomposed into exactly n smaller cubes such that the ratio of the side length of the largest cube to the side length of the smallest one is at most 1 +epsilon. Moreover, for every n >= n(0), there is a decomposition with the required properties, using cubes of at most d + 2 different side lengths. If we drop the condition that the side lengths of the cubes must be roughly equal, it is sufficient to use cubes of three different sizes.
