We analyze approximation algorithms for bounded-space bin packing by comparing them against the optimal bounded-space packing (instead of comparing them against the globally optimal packing that does not necessarily satisfy the bounded-space constraint). For 2-bounded-space bin packing we construct a polynomial time offline approximation algorithm with asymptotic worst case ratio 3/2, and we show a lower bound of 5/4 for this scenario. We show that no 2-bounded-space online algorithm can have an asymptotic worst case ratio better than 4/3.
