The miminum required flow l on each edge translates to a demand on the nodes. Solving the circulation problem gives a flow which satisfies the minimum flow value requirement on each edge. Its possible the flow in itself is not minimum. To find the minimum possible flow, build a graph G’ with the same vertex set as G. For every edge e = ( u, v) in G, add an edge ( u, v) with capacity c e- f(e) and another edge ( v, u ) with capacity f(e) - l e . Find the maximim flow f t from t to s in graph G’. The minimum flow f m ( e ) for every edge e(u,v) =f(e) - f t ( v, u ) + f t ( u, v ) . It can be seen easily that the value f m will be minimum. The pushback from t to s in G’ will reduce the flow by the maximium possible on every edge. b) Consider any s-t cut C(A,B) in G. The flow value across the cut v(C) = sum of flow on all edges out of A - Sum of flow on all edges into A. ≥ Σ e out of A l e − Σ e into A f m ( e ) ≥ Σ eout of A l e − Σ e into A c ( e ) — (1) Build the Graph G’ (as mentioned in part a) using flow f m . Consider the set of all vertices B reachable from t. Consider the cut C’(V-B, B) in graph G.set of all vertices B reachable from t....
