The problem of packing rectangles into several strips is considered. It is shown that for this problem there exist on-line algorithms with multiplicative error asymptotically close to 2 e , where e is the base of the natural logarithm. It is proved that none of the on-line algorithms can have the...
A Boolean function g is said to be an annihilator of a Boolean function f if fg = 0. In some problems concerning finite automata, it is required to find non-zero annihilators of low algebraic degree for a function f . In this paper we suggest Algorithm M2 which, given the Zhegalkin polynomial for...
