# Einige Bemerkungen zu einer Bin-Packing Aufgabe von W. Knödel

**
Abstract.
W. Kn\"odel has considered a bin--packing problem which can
be seen within the context of random walks. The height of a random
walk is a well studied parameter which can also be defined in
Kn\"odels model. Its average is computed and shown to be of order
$\sqrt n$. The methods include singularity analysis of generating
functions as well as
Mellin transforms.
