Power law in a one-dimensional random sequential packing
en
ISOKAWA Yukinao
A one-dimensional random sequential packing problem is studied under the assumption that packed intervals may have arbitrarily small lengths. After generating lengths of intervals according to a probability distribution G and packing these intervals into an interval [0, x), we denote by F(x, b) the mean number of packed intervals whose lengths are larger than b. Then, under a general assumption on G, we obtain an explicit expression for F(x, b) using G. Furthermore, when G satisfies a power law, we show that F(x, b) satisfies another power law which is closely connected with that for G.
