A note on the lower bound for online strip packing


Kern, W. and Paulus, J.J. (2009) A note on the lower bound for online strip packing. [Report]

open access
Abstract:This note presents a lower bound of $3/2+\sqrt{33}/6 \approx 2.457$ on the competitive ratio for online strip packing. The instance construction we use to obtain the lower bound was first coined by Brown, Baker and Katseff (1980). Recently this instance construction is used to improve the lower bound in computer aided proofs. We derive the best possible lower bound that can be obtained with this instance construction.
