Presentation Transcript
Kramer’s (a.k.a Cramer’s) Rule
• Component j of

x = A-1b is

• Form Bj by replacing column j of A with b.
Total Unimodularity
• A square, integer matrix B is unimodular (UM) if its determinant is 1 or -1.
• An integer matrix A is called totally unimodular (TUM) if every square, nonsingular submatrix of A is UM.
• From Cramer’s rule, it follows that if A is TUM and b is an integer vector, then every BFS of the constraint system Ax = b is integer.
TUM Theorem
• An integer matrix A is TUM if
• All entries are -1, 0 or 1
• At most two non-zero entries appear in any column
• The rows of A can be partitioned into two disjoint sets such that
• If a column has two entries of the same sign, their rows are in different sets.
• If a column has two entries of different signs, their rows are in the same set.
• The MCNFP constraint matrices are TUM.

Shortest Path Problems
• Defined on a Network
• Nodes, Arcs and Arc Costs
• Two Special Nodes
• Origin Node s
• Destination Node t
• A path from s to t is an alternating sequence of nodes and arcs starting at s and ending at t:

s,(s,v1),v1,(v1,v2),…,(vi,vj),vj,(vj,t),t

s=1, t=3

We Want a Minimum Length Path From s to t.

MCNF Formulation of Shortest Path Problems
• Origin Node s has a supply of 1
• Destination Node t has a demand of 1
• All other Nodes are Transshipment Nodes
• Each Arc has Capacity 1
• Tracing A Unit of Flow from s to t gives a Path from s to t
Maximum Flow Problems
• Defined on a Network
• Source Node s
• Sink Node t
• All Other Nodes are Transshipment Nodes
• Arcs have Capacities, but no Costs
• Maximize the Flow from s to t
Example: Rerouting Airline Passengers

Due to a mechanical problem, Fly-By-Night Airlines had to cancel flight 162 - its only non-stop flight from San Francisco to New York. The table below shows the number of seats available on Fly-By-Night's other flights.

Formulate a maximum flow problem that will tell Fly-By-Night

how to reroute as many passengers from San Francisco to

New York as possible.

MCNF Formulation of Maximum Flow Problems
• Let Arc Cost = 0 for all Arcs
• Add an infinite capacity arc from t to s
• Give this arc a cost of -1

Maximum-Flow Minimum-Cut Theorem
• Removing arcs (D,C) and (A,NY) cuts off SF from NY.
• The set of arcs{(D,C), (A,NY)} is an s-t cut with capacity 2+7=9.
• The value of a maximum s-t flow = the capacity of a minimum s-t cut.
