### Multi way cut and k-cut :

Multi way cut and k-cut Saeed Akhoondian Amiri , under supervisor of Dr.Moazzami

### Multi way cut:

Multi way cut Given a set of terminals , a multiway cut is a set of edges whose removal disconnects the terminals from each other. multiwaycut asks for the minimum weight such set.

### Isolating cut:

Isolating cut Define an isolating cut for S i to be a sets of edges whose removal disconnects s i from the rest of terminals.

### Algorithm 4.3 (Multiway cut):

Algorithm 4.3 ( Multiway cut) For each i =1,…,k, compute a minimum weight isolating cut for S i , say C i . Discard the heaviest of these cuts, and output the union of rest, say C.

### approximation factor:

approximation factor Let A , be an optimal cut in G , Let A i be a cut separating s i from the rest of graph. Then we have . Each edges of A is incident at two of these components, Hence:

### approximation factor:

approximation factor Clearly A i is isolating cut for s i , since C i is a minimum weight isolating cut for s i , w( C i )≤w(A i ) . Now if skip C k ( because there is no need to this cut) we have:

### Tight example for 2-2/k factor:

Tight example for 2-2/k factor A graph on a 2k vertices consisting of k-cycle and a distinct terminal attached to each vertex of the cycle. Each in edge in cycle have weight 1 and each edges connects terminal to cycle have weight . The cost by this algorithm is but the Optimal Multiway cut is given by removing K edges in cycle cost is K .

### Simple Algorithm:

Simple Algorithm First obvious algorithm is starting G, compute a minimum cut in each connected component and remove a lightest one. This algorithm does achieve a guarantee of 2-2/k factor, but proof is hard. We will produce another algorithm with Homory-gu tree, let see what is Homory-Gu tree.

### Gommory-Hu tree:

Gommory-Hu tree We have G=(V,E), Let T be a tree on vertext set V, the edges of T need not be in E. Let e be an edge in T, it’s removal from T creates two connected components. Let S and S’ be a vertex sets of this components, The cut defined buy the partition (S,S’) is the cut associated with e in G. define a weight function w’ on T:

### Gommory-Hu tree:

Gommory-Hu tree Tree T, will be said Homory-Gu tree for G if: For each pair of vertices , the weight of a minimum u-v cut in G is the same as that in T. For each edge , w’(e) is the a weight of cut associated with e in G.

### Algorithm 4.7 achieve an approximation factor of 2-2/k:

Algorithm 4.7 achieve an approximation factor of 2-2/k Without loss of generality assume A k is the heaviest cut, the proof idea is showing that there are k-1 cuts defined by the edges of T whose weights are dominated by the weights of the cuts of A 1 ,A 2 ,…A k-1 .

Consider a graph on vertex set V and edges set B, and shrink each of vertex set V i to a single vertex. Throw edges away until tree remains, and Let to be the left over edges, |B’| = k-1.
