Abstract: It has been recently pointed out by Farr and Groot arXiv:0912.0852 and byKyrylyuk and Philipse Prog. Colloid Polym. Sci., 2010, in press that ourtheoretical result for the jamming density of a binary mixture of hard spheresarXiv:0903.5099 apparently violates an upper bound that is obtained byconsidering the limit where the diameter ratio r = DA-DB goes to infinity. Webelieve that this apparent contradiction is the consequence of amisunderstanding, which we try to clarify here.
