5 What would happen if the flow were negative? 1 3 6 4 5 2 7 1 3 -6 -4 1 2 3 If the direction of (4,3) were reversed, the flow in (3,4) would be negative. -2 3 6 4 4 3 A spanning tree flow is guaranteed to satisfy the supply/demand constraints. 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 .

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.
