Karger’s min-cut algorithm

Hey, it may be useful for today’s lecture if you have a quick read over Karger’s randomized algorithm for min-cuts. Just the basic algorithm and analysis—we won’t need the improved Karger-Stein variant.

Hi, if you volunteered to help grade HW3, please send me mail (if you haven’t already done so). Thanks! –Anupam

Heads-up for today’s lecture

Today’s lecture will not have notes (like the great ones Avrim’s been handing out), sorry! So you might want to bring along some paper and pencils to take your own notes. 🙂

Also, if you have a minute, look over the randomized rounding algorithm/proof for low-congestion routing we saw in the previous lecture: we’ll try to talk about its derandomization today (among other things).

Welcome!
