Title: The Maximum Flow Reoptimization Problem
Speaker: Doug Altner

Location: ISyE Executive Classroom, Rm# 228

The need to solve a large number of maximum flow problems as part of a greater computational procedure appears in literature on game theory, integer programming and stochastic programming. However, simply using a black-box maximum flow solver can often lead to an exorbitant amount of unnecessary computations. In this talk, we discuss how to rapidly solve an online sequence of similar maximum flow problems using efficient reoptimization techniques. We will then extend our work to efficiently solve a robust minimum cut problem.

This is joint work with Dr. Ozlem Ergun, assistant professor in the Stewart School of ISyE.
