In this project we are interested in investigating combinatorial optimization problems, especially packing problems. In packing problems, we have a number of items in a given dimension that must be packed into containers satisfying some constraints. The packing must be done by optimizing a given objective function. The packing problems that we consider have applications in several areas such as logistics, allocation of computer resources, among others. The objective of this project is to investigate these problems in theoretical and practical ways, with the development of algorithms for them, as well as, investigate their complexity classes.
