Connectivity and cut algorithms


Algorithms for finding k-edge-augmentations

A k-edge-augmentation is a set of edges, that once added to a graph, ensures that the graph is k-edge-connected; i.e. the graph cannot be disconnected unless k or more edges are removed. Typically, the goal is to find the augmentation with minimum weight. In general, it is not guaranteed that a k-edge-augmentation exists.
