Abstract
We study strip packing, which is one of the most classical two-dimensional packing problems: given a collection of rectangles, the problem is to find a feasible orthogonal packing without rotations into a strip of width $1$ and minimum height. In this paper we present an approximation algorithm for the strip packing problem with absolute approximation ratio of $5/3+\eps$ for any $\eps>0$. This result significantly narrows the gap between the best known upper bound and the lower bound of $3/2$; previously, the best upper bound was $1.9396$ due to Harren and van Stee.
