(LaTeX) Abstract:
We continue the study of bin packing with splittable items and
cardinality constraints. In this problem, a set of items must be
packed into as few bins as possible. Items may be split, but each bin may
contain at most $k$ (parts of) items, where $k$ is some
fixed constant.
Complicating the problem further is the fact that
items may be larger than 1, which is the size of a bin.
We close this problem
by providing a polynomial-time approximation scheme for it. We first
present a scheme for the case $k=2$ and then for the general case
of constant $k$.

Additionally, we present \emph{dual} approximation schemes for $k=2$
and constant $k$.
Thus we show that for any $\varepsilon>0$, it is possible to pack the items into
the optimal number of bins in polynomial time,
if the algorithm may use bins of size $1+\varepsilon$.
