Spiral Packings of Circles in Circles

Spiral packings of circles in circles are mostly just for fun, although one can learn from them. For small numbers of circles they are sometimes optimal, but not so as the number n of circles increases. Here are some animations:

      n = 52       n = 39       n = 44       n = 157
