Lattice flows in networks

Lattice flows in networks We consider flows in networks analogous to numerical flows but such that values of arc capacities are elements of a lattice. We present an analog of the max-flow min-cut theorem. However, finding the value of the maximum flow for lattice flows is based on not this theorem but computations in the algebra of matrices over the lattice; in particular, the maximum flow value is found with the help of transitive closure of flow capacity functions.

Abstract

We consider flows in networks analogous to numerical flows but such that values of arc capacities are elements of a lattice. We present an analog of the max-flow min-cut theorem. However, finding the value of the maximum flow for lattice flows is based on not this theorem but computations in the algebra of matrices over the lattice; in particular, the maximum flow value is found with the help of transitive closure of flow capacity functions. We show that there exists a correspondence between flows and solutions of special-form systems of linear equations over distributive lattices.
