endobj • Maximum flow problems find a feasible flow through a single-source, single-sink flow network that is maximum. a) Flow on an edge doesn’t exceed the given capacity of the edge. The cost of assigning each man to each job is given in the following table. /QFactor 0 It is found that the maximum safe traffic flow occurs at a speed of 30 km/hr. stream The An example of a maximal flow problem is illustrated by the network of a railway system between Omaha and St. Louis shown in Figure 7.18. We are limited to four cars because that is the maximum amount available on the branch between nodes 5 and 6.
