You do not need to turn in your Excel files. Consider the following network, and suppose that we must find two paths from the origin (node 1) to the destination (node 9). Each path represents telephone line that we lay to connect one customer to another (in one direction). However, we need two paths for redundancy in case any one arc breaks. Therefore, the paths must not use any arcs in common. (They can use nodes in common.) Formulate this problem as a network flow problem (use the nodes and arcs below, with their associated costs, and tell me what the capacities and surplus/demand values are). The objective is to minimize the total cost of installing telephone lines. 11 8 1 6 3 3 5 2 7 4 5 5 7 8 9 7 2 9 8 10 8 3 6 i := 1 .. 9 Per Schaum's Outline of Operations Research Chapter 13: "A minimum-span problem involves a set of nodes and a set of proposed branches, none of them oriented. [...] It is not hard to see that a minimum-span problem is always solved by a tree." This means that to solve this problem requires solving the most optimal solution as a tree, removing those arcs from the diagram, then solving the most optimal solution again, thus revealing the two most optimal solutions. Using the Shaum's cheapest-path method to get started.
