We overview some hardness results and classic approximation algorithms regarding the bin packing problem. Our main focus is devoted to a specific variant of the problem, which is called the black and white bin packing. Assume we are given a set of weighted items of two colors (black and white) and we want to pack them into the minimum number of unit capacity bins so that the colors alternate in each bin. We will discuss the competitiveness of some classic algorithms like Next Fit, First Fit and Harmonic(K) in the online setting of the problem. Furthermore, the lower bound of 1+1/(2ln2) on the asymptotic approximation ratio of all online algorithms is presented. These are mostly results of a paper by Balogh, Békési, Dosa, Kellerer, and Tuza from 2012.
