# Further results on a problem of Knödel concerning the analysis of
bin-packing

**Abstract.
Assume that inputs of size $\frac 14$, $\frac 24$, $\frac 34$, or 1 might
occur with equal probabilities. If they are put into boxes of size 1 by
the strategy {\it best fit}, there remains some {\it empty space}. This
quantity has been evaluated asymptotically for $n$ {\it random insertions}.
