### 10480 - Sabotage

Posted: Fri Aug 22, 2003 3:57 am
I want to use search but I think it's inefficient. Is there any efficient and
easy algorithm? Any hint is aprreciated.

Max-flow min-cut, look it up..

I know Max-flow, but it only calculates the minimum number of edges
to cut. How can I know the minimum cost?

### 10480 - test cases?

Does anyone have any test cases for this problem? It seems like it's just straight forward min-cut.

Code: Select all

Thanks!

Here's some test cases that I came up with. The solutions to these are not necessarily unique.

Input:

Code: Select all

``````5 8
1 4 30
1 3 70
5 3 20
4 3 5
4 5 15
5 2 10

2 4 50

Output:

Use the cost as the capacity for each edge.

Data set for this problem is weak,I think.As,The Graph is undirected.
Output for following should be:

Code: Select all

``````7 7
1 4 2
4 5 5
5 2 2
1 7 3
7 5 3
4 6 3
6 2 3
0 0
``````

My latest accepted approach Outputs:

Code: Select all

``````1 4
1 7
``````
But my another accepted(Not supposed to get accepted ) outputs:

Code: Select all

``````1 4
5 4
5 2
``````
which is definitely wrong.

This is the second problem I solved after learning flow algorithm. After figuring out that max flow is equivalent to min cut, the difficult part was finding a way to print the cuts. Read few books but it didn't help. Took me 3 days to find the following link. Hope it helps some one.
