Com S 511 : Homework #1 Problem 1 Problem 1 Because the network has no infinite-capacity paths from s to t. So along each path from s to t, we could not send a finite among of flow, thus the maximum folw f * is finite. By (7.13), the capacity of min cut is equal to the value of the max flow. Let (A,B) denotes such cut and E c denotes the set of edges crossing from A to B. Then any edge crossing from A to B has finite capacity, which means E c E 0 . Thus c ( A, B ) = e out of A c e e E 0 c e . Let any cut (A’, B’) be any cut in the new network G’. If 1) among the edges crossing from A’ to B’, there exists an edge, which has infinite capacity in G, then c(A’, B’) M e E 0 c e c(A, B); otherwise 2), the capacity of (A’, B’) remains unchanged and c(A’, B’) c(A,B). Therefore, (A, B) is still the min cut in G’ and thus the max flow is not affected.

### 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.
