A Simple and Strongly-Local Flow-Based Method for Cut Improvement [article]

Nate Veldt, David F. Gleich, Michael W. Mahoney
2016 arXiv   pre-print
This method solves the same objective as existing strongly-local flow-based methods, but it enables a simple implementation.  ...  We introduce and analyze a new method for locally-biased graph-based learning called SimpleLocal, which finds good conductance cuts near a set of seed vertices.  ...  In comparison with Improve, our method is strongly-local and practically scalable (given a max-flow solver for the local graphs).  ...

Capacity Scaling for Graph Cuts in Vision

Olivier Juan, Yuri Boykov
2007 2007 IEEE 11th International Conference on Computer Vision  
Capacity scaling is a hierarchical approach to graph representation that can improve theoretical complexity and practical efficiency of max-flow/min-cut algorithms.  ...  While [3] is the fastest method for many applications in vision, capacity scaling gives several folds speed-ups for problems with large number of local minima.  ...  For example, it can be applied to more recent methods based on pre-flows (e.g. push-relabel algorithm of Goldberg and Tarjan) and on pseudo-flows (Hochbaum [9] ).  ...
