comment Measuring orderedness
Thank you. As I suspected, I simply did not know the name of what I was looking for. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rank_correlation gives a good overview.

comment Measuring orderedness
Yes I apologise for the vagueness of my requirements, I suppose I'm looking for any other method to consider apart from the two I've given. For instance some kind of fourier/discrete transform may give an appropriate response, although I haven't looked into it.

comment Sphere packing in a cuboid algorithm
My apologies, I have corrected the first paragraph. I've seen your first link, and basically wish to 1. Replicate the calculations they made, 2. Generalise to spheres in a cuboid, 3. Correct to allow the spheres outside iff their centres remain inside. The 2nd link looks useful, I will check it for information on the algorithms/methods used. Edit: From your 1st link: combinatorics.org/Volume_11/PDF/v11i1r33.pdf Mentions the "Billiard algorithm" and how it was adapted. This may be what I am after, I will give it a read.
