It may violate an upper or lower bound. A spanning tree flow is called feasible if it satisfies its upper and lower bound. Otherwise, it is infeasible .

6 Basic Flows A basis structure consists of a spanning tree T, a set L of arcs, and a set U of arcs, such that T L U = A. For each (i,j) L, x ij = 0. For each (i,j) U, x ij = u ij . The arc flows in T are selected so that each node satisfies its supply/demand constraint. The basis structure is feasible if the arc flows also satisfy the upper and lower bounds. It is possible for a basis structure to be infeasible. In fact, this is normally the case in the dual simplex algorithm.

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
