2 Informatics and Mathematical Modelling / Operations Research Min Cost Flow - Terminology We consider a digraph G = ( V ( G ) , E ( G )) in which each edge e has a capacity u e ∈ R + and a unit transportation cost c e ∈ R . Each vertex v furthermore has a demand b v ∈ R . If b v 0 then v is called a sink , and if b v < 0 then v is called a source . We assume that b ( V ) = v V b v = 0 .

4 Informatics and Mathematical Modelling / Operations Research Min Cost Flow - Definition The Min Cost Flow problem consists in supplying the sinks from the sources by a flow in the cheapest possible way: min e E c e x e f x ( v ) = b v v V 0 x vw u vw ( u, w ) E where f x ( v ) = ( w,v ) E x wv - ( w,v ) E x vw .
