I am working on a project, in which I have to optimize the placement of N unequal circles in a given rectangular area, such that if these circles are considered as a sensor field, I can possibly reduce the points from where intrusions are possible.
The total area of N unequal circles is not fixed with respect to the given rectangle, i.e. combined area of circles can be less or approximately equal to the area of the rectangle.
So, basically I have to create a particular optimised configuration where there are minimal voids and intrusions. I need an algorithm to implement this, such that I get relative coordinates of circles in such an optimal configuration.
