Practical Performance of Efficient Minimum Cut Algorithms

Jünger, Michael and Rinaldi, Giovanni and Thienel, Stefan (2000) Practical Performance of Efficient Minimum Cut Algorithms.
Published in: Algorithmica Vol. 26 (1). pp. 172-195.


In the late eighties and early nineties, three major exciting new developments (and some ramifications) in the computation of minimum capacity cuts occurred and these developments motivated us to evaluate the old and new methods experimentally. We provide a brief overview of the most important algorithms for the minimum capacity cut problem and compare these methods both on problem instances from the literature and on problem instances originating from the solution of the traveling salesman problem by branch-and-cut.
