- Understand these domains.
- Make a map of key concepts in these domains.
- Relate persistent homology to the kissing number.
- Do calculations with practical examples.
- Make a map of mathematics by studying sets of tags at Math Stack exchange and Math Overflow. Use it to predict (using duality) the location of new theorems and concepts.
- Study ways of identifying new concepts in chess.
- Make a map of deepest values.

- What about a reverse approach... where we divide up the space into regions where there are points and where there are not. Consider the largest circles that you can create with no points in it. You can do this by considering the bisecting points on the segments between each pair of points - use these as the centers of your circles. So this will give you a break down into regions. Now do this again allowing a circle to contain one point. (This is perhaps the current case? - for we can use each point as the center of a circle.) Then continue by allowing it to contain 2 points. And so on.
