Almost-Tight Distributed Minimum Cut Algorithms

  title={Almost-Tight Distributed Minimum Cut Algorithms},
  author={Danupon Nanongkai and Hsin-Hao Su},
We study the problem of computing the minimum cut in a weighted distributed messagepassing networks (the CONGEST model). Let λ be the minimum cut, n be the number of nodes (processors) in the network, and D be the network diameter. Our algorithm can compute λ exactly in O(( √ n log∗ n+D)λ log n) time. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first paper that explicitly studies computing the exact minimum cut in the distributed setting. Previously, non-trivial sublinear time algorithms for this… CONTINUE READING
