PROFIT - Maximum Profit

no tags 

CS&T, the well-known cellphone company, is going to set some new service stations among n possible ones, which are numbered 1,2,...,n. The costs of setting these stations are known as P1,P2,..,Pn. Also the company has made a survey among the cellphone users, and now they know that there are m user groups numbered 1,2,...,m, which will communicate by service station Ai and Bi, and the company can profit Ci.

Now CS&T wants to know which service stations are to be set that the company will profit most.


T [The number of tests]
n m [n<=5000 m<=50000]
P1 P2 P3 ... Pn [Pi<=100]
A1 B1 C1 
A2 B2 C2
Am Bm Cm [1<=Ai,Bi<=n, Ci<=100]
[other tests]

At least 80% of the tests satisfy that n<=200, m<=1000.

Nice one.

Try to frame it as a Min-Cut problem.

Try thinking of a flow scenario in a bipartite graph. Then use Dinic's algorithm, its pretty fast in case of bipartite graphs.

Try the Improved Shortest Augmenting Path Algorithm at TopCoder. (Disclaimer: I don't know if it actually works or not.)

I would like to ask: how many test cases are there?

I am currently using the Ford Fulkerson algorithm for calculating the max flow of the graph. However, since there are lots of nodes, the algorithm is too slow. Could anyone suggest a faster algorithm to find the max flow? Thanks.
