Abstract
In the load balancing problem, there is a set of servers,
and jobs arrive sequentially. Each job can be run
on some subset of the servers, and must be assigned
to one of them in an online fashion. Traditionally,
the assignment of jobs to servers is measured by the
L1 norm; in other words, an assignment of jobs to
servers is quantified by the maximum load assigned to
any server. In this measure the performance of the
