In 1985, Martel published a linear time algorithm with a 3 asymptotic worst-case ratio for the one-dimensional bin packing problem. The algorithm is based on a linear time classification of the sizes of the items, and thereafter according to the number of elements in certain subclasses pairing the items in a clever way. In his paper Martel mentioned a natural generalization of this algorithm, that suggested a 4 algorithm. Although this seemed to be very simple, the improvement has not been… CONTINUE READING
