Given a digraph $ G = (V, A) $ with a source $ s in V $ and a sink $ t in V $, I need to adapt the graph to find out if a pair of vertices $ u in V $ and $ v in V $ belongs to the min-cut $ S $ Between $ s $ and $ t $. In other words, a new summit $ a $ belongs to the min-cut $ S $ if and only if $ u in S $ and $ v in S $. This new vertex must maintain the original max flow of $ s $ at $ t $. I tried to create new arcs $ (u, a) $ and $ (a, v) $ with endless abilities, but while $ a $ belongs to $ S $ when $ u in S $, it forces immediately $ v $ To belong to $ S $ also, which is not necessarily true if the maximum flow was calculated in the original graph $ G $. So is there a way to force a new node to be in the min-cut set $ S $ if a pair of vertices belongs to $ S $?

## ford fulkerson – Min-cut in a zero flow network from source to well

The max-cut min-flow theorem ensures that the minimum cut of a directed network is equal to the maximum throughput. And we can calculate $ S $ and $ T $, are disjoint subsets containing the source and receiver nodes of the residual graph, respectively.

What will be $ S $ and $ T $ if the maximum flow from the source to the well is equal to 0, there is no path led from $ s $ at $ t $? is $ S $ is going to be the singleton set {s} or its empty set $ phi $ and $ T $ to be the set of summits $ V $?

## In a Min-Cut problem, how often do I have to run Karger's algorithm in a given set of nodes?

Question:

On 22 nodes, how many times do I have to run Karger's algorithm to find a min-cut problem in an error range (for example, <2 or between 0 and 1)?

## Confusion about Min-Cut probabilities

- Watching a video on Counting Minimum Cuts by Tim Roughgarden.
- $ (A_ {i}, B_ {i}) = big ((A_ {1}, B_ {1}), …, (A_ {t}, B_ {t}) big) forall i in Bbb {R} $
- $ P big ((A_ {i}, B_ {i}) big) geq frac {1} { begin {pmatrix} n \ 2 end {pmatrix}} = p $, which I interpret as the lower limit of the probability of having at least a minimal reduction.
- In the following problem, two answers A and B are highlighted as correct.
**I understand why A is correct but I am puzzled why B is also marked as correct.** - A: for each graph $ G $ with $ n $ knots and every min cut $ (A, B) $ (I'm assuming the same thing as $ (A_ {i}, B_ {i}) $) $ P big ((A, B) big) geq p $.
- B There is a graph $ G $ with $ n $ knots and a min cut $ (A, B) $ (still assuming the same thing as $ (A_ {i}, B_ {i}) $) of $ G $ such as $ P big ((A, B) big) leq p $.
