    If you have a degenerate solution, do you have to fill a 0 into one of the cells before beginning the stepping-stone method? And if so, which cell do you choose? I know it makes no impact on initial cost, but surely it would make a difference when you're working out the improvement indices?
    Yes, you do.

    You can choose any cell. However it's usually best to put it next to other values in the table, so you can keep the "movement" one square down, across, etc. when doing stepping stone

    By inspection, find a flow-augmenting route to increase the flow by one unit. You must stateyour route

    How would you go about doing this?????

    Game theory was rather fun.

    I have done 5 chapters. They are all pretty so far. Only need 70 for A* in Additional further maths.

    Same I need around 60-70 or somenthing.
    Game theory is interesting.

    Since you have done Game theory. Page 150-151, do you think the optimal solution is wrong? Surely its the top intersection since we are looking for minimax.

    Why is it that in the mark scheme for flow augmenting routes, they went against the direction arrow and also went into a saturated arc? I thought you can't do that when finding flow augmenting routes.

    It was a maximin. "Maximum of the minimums". Janet wanted to find the maximum weight of the truck she could use, given a set of maximum weights on the roads.

    This is where you have to be careful. The 'maximum weights on the roads' refers to the smallest values in the network.

    Hence, maximum of the minimums. Maximin.

    could some please explain why row 4 dominates row 2 in this question.
    I thought it was the other way round......

    your looking at columns not rows. when looking at columns, your are looking at the points gained by player b. however, this is a table by player a.

    When looking at columns, if a<b a dominates b

    When looking at rows, if a>b a dominates b

    B is the defensive player. Why would he play 4 when 2 has lower losses?

    You mean column 4 and column 3 right?

    Since you're looking at columns then you're reading the table as if you were B. e.g, every negative number in the table is actually a gain for B (because the table is written from A's point of view). Hence, column 4 dominates column 2.
