In this paper we give tighter bounds than were previously known for the performance of the bin packing algorithms Bets Fit and First Fit when the inputs are uniformly distributed on [0,1]. We also give a general lower bound for the performance of any on-line bin packing algorithm. These results are proven by analyzing problems concerning matching random points in a unit square. We give a new lower bound for upward right matching and grid matching.
