BKMaxflow

The Boykov-Kolmogorov Max-flow Algorithm for Julia

Readme

The Boykov-Kolmogorov Maxflow Algorithm

Build Status Build status codecov.io Coverage Status

This package provides a wrapper for Vladimir Kolmogorov's Max-flow/min-cut library and a pure Julia implementation of the algorithm. The wrapper will automatically download those precompiled binaries(note the maxflow-v3.01 library has its own license, you may need to take a look before using it) from BKMaxflowBuilder and it is much faster than the Julia implementation. However, the Julia version is more understandable and could be served as a good learning material for the algorithm. In addition, this implementation is 3x faster and more scalable than the one in LightGraphsFlows.jl.

Quick Start

Julia API

using BKMaxflow

weights, neighbors = create_graph(JuliaImpl{Float64,Int}, 4)

add_edge!(weights, neighbors, 1, 2, 1., 1.)
add_edge!(weights, neighbors, 1, 3, 2., 2.)
add_edge!(weights, neighbors, 2, 3, 3., 4.)
add_edge!(weights, neighbors, 2, 4, 5., 5.)
add_edge!(weights, neighbors, 3, 4, 6., 6.)

w = reshape(weights, 2, :)
flow, label = boykov_kolmogorov(1, 4, neighbors, w)

C API(high-level)

using BKMaxflow

g = create_graph(CImpl{Cdouble}, 2, 1)

add_node(CImpl{Cdouble}, g, 1)
add_node(CImpl{Cdouble}, g, 1)

add_tweights(CImpl, g, 0, 1., 5.)
add_tweights(CImpl, g, 1, 2., 6.)

add_edge(CImpl, g, 0, 1, 3., 4.)

flow = maxflow(CImpl{Cdouble}, g)  #-> 3

what_segment(CImpl{Cdouble}, g, 0)  #-> 1 which means it belongs to sink
what_segment(CImpl{Cdouble}, g, 1)  #-> 1 which means it belongs to sink

delete_graph(CImpl{Cdouble}, g)

C API(low-level)

using BKMaxflow

err = Ref{bk_error}(C_NULL)

g = bk_create_graph_double(2, 1, err[])

bk_add_node_double(g, 1, err[])
bk_add_node_double(g, 1, err[])

bk_add_tweights_double(g, 0, 1., 5., err[])
bk_add_tweights_double(g, 1, 2., 6., err[])

bk_add_edge_double(g, 0, 1, 3., 4., err[])

flow = bk_maxflow_double(g, false, err[])

bk_what_segment_double(g, 0, err[])
bk_what_segment_double(g, 1, err[])

bk_delete_graph_double(g)
