Abstract:We consider the problem of packing n items which are drawn according to a probability distribution whose density function is triangular in shape. For triangles which represent density functions whose expectation is l/p for p = 3, 4, 5, ... , we give a packing strategy for which the ratio of the number of bins used in the packing to the expected total size of the items asymptotically approaches 1.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
