Hi Daniel,
I wonder if your min-cut algorithm can be used to find max flow, since min-cut and max-flow are dual? I am currently using two max-flow implementations in BOOST (i.e, Goldberg and Kolmogorov). What is the complexity compared to the two max-flow implementations in BOOST. I am looking for fastest max flow implementation available.
Another related question: does BOOST offer parallel implementation of any max-flow algorithm?
