    I dont especially understand how to select flow-augmenting routes? do u select randomly and how does the back flow work? How do you find an initial flow? How do u find da minimum cuts? is there any tips to find it easily? I know dat max flow is da minimum cut but i can neva see which one it is and also for finding maximal flows by labelling whats the best procedure to use?

    augmenting flow is any flow that consists of unsaturated arcs forwards AND/OR back flows. back flows just treat them opposite as you would for foward arcs.

    In a forward arc you increase flow and decrease excess capacity, in a back flow you increase excess capacity and decrease flow.
