If a problem is computationally intractable in this sense, it is natural to If a problem is computationally intractable in this sense, it is natural to abandon the search for an optimal solution and to ask instead whether an approximation to the 3.2 Linear and Integer Programming 27 instance is bounded from above by a polynomialfunction of the input length (Garey and Johnson 1979, pp. 94вЂ“95)..

The vast majority of the liter- ature on this problem concerns polynomial-time approxima-tion algorithms, such as п¬Ѓrst-п¬Ѓt and best-п¬Ѓt decreasing, and the quality of the solutions they compute, rather than opti-mal solutions. We discuss these approximation algorithms in the next section. The best existing algorithm for optimal bin packing is due to Martello
