9Bo Hong Initialize h(u), e(u), and f(u,v) h(s) = |V| h(u) = 0 for u є V – {s} f(s,u) = c(s,u) e(u) = c(s,u) f(u,v) = 0, otherwise While there exists applicable push or lift operations execute the push or lift operations asynchronously S t a d b c

11Bo Hong while e(u) > 0 e’ = e(u) h’ = ∞ for each (u,v) s.t. c f (u, v) > 0 if h(v) < h’ h’ = h(v) v’ = v if h(u) > h’ d = min ( e’, c f (u, v’) ) c f (u, v’) = c f (u, v’) + d c f (v’, u) = c f (v’, u) – d e(u) = e(u) – d e(v’) = e(v’) + d else h(u) = h’ + 1 while e(u) > 0 e’ = e(u) h’ = ∞ for each (u,v) s.t. c f (u, v) > 0 if h(v) < h’ h’ = h(v) v’ = v if h(u) > h’ d = min ( e’, c f (u, v’) ) c f (u, v’) = c f (u, v’) + d c f (v’, u) = c f (v’, u) – d e(u) = e(u) – d e(v’) = e(v’) + d else h(u) = h’ + 1 P1P2 time or

As long as c f (u,v) and e(u) are updated atomically, we always have h(u) ≤ h(v) + 1 for any c f (u,v) > 0, no matter how the threads are interleaved. 12 Bo Hong

 If any e(u) > 0, then the algorithm will not terminate Property of the push and lift operations  If the algorithm terminates, then there is no path from s to t in the residual graph Proof by contradiction, if such path exists, then the invariant property of function f has to be broken  If the algorithm terminates, it finds a maximum flow Termination implies all e(u)=0, meaning this is a feasible flow. No path from s to t, by max-flow min-cut theorem, it has to be a maximum flow 13 Bo Hong

 For any u s.t. e(u) > 0, there exists a path from u to s in the residual graph Property of network flow  The height of any vertex is less than 2|V| - 1 The longest path can have at most |V| vertices  The total number of lift operations is bound by 2|V| 2 -|V| Bound by the height of vertices  The total number of saturated pushes is bound by (2|V|-1)∙|E| Bound by the total number of lift operations  The total number of un-saturated pushes is bound by 4|V| 2 ∙|E| Bound by the number of lift and saturated pushes  Therefore the algorithm terminates with O(|V| 2 ∙|E|) operations 14 Bo Hong

 The algorithm terminates when e(u) = 0 for all u є V – {s,t} e(u) = 0 at a single thread is insufficient to terminate the thread  An elegant solution: The net flow out of source s decreases monotonically The net flow into sink t increases monotonically When the two values become equal, we must have e(u) = 0 for all u є V – {s,t}, a necessary and sufficient termination condition. 15 Bo Hong

 Execution results on 2-way SMP with 3.2GHz Intel Xeon Processors  4-thread results obtained when hyper-threading was enabled Bo Hong 16 Comparison Against Classical Lock-Based Algorithm Scalability of the Lock-Free Algorithm

 Developed a lock-free multi-threaded algorithm for the max-flow problem having the same complexity bound as existing parallel algorithms eliminated lock usages thereby improving thread-level parallelism 20% improvement over existing lock-based parallel algorithms  Results indicate the effectiveness of algorithmic method in reducing synchronization overheads  Future work Load balancing across the threads: vertex to thread assignment, static or dynamic or hybrid? Optimize cache usages Reduce the number of operations via global and gap relabling What if edge capacities are floating-point? Bo Hong 17
