Description: Hales has announced a proof of the Hexagonal Honeycomb Conjecture, which asserts that any partition of the plane into regions of equal area has perimeter at least that of the regular hexagonal honeycomb tiling. This paper in a variety of formats (postscript, PDF, DVI) gives the first general proof, with some historical background.
