Depends on method for finding augmenting path.

Use breadth-first search (Edmonds-Karp Algorithm). Thus, the augmenting path is shortest from s to t.

**Theorem 27.9**

The total number of augmentations is *VE*^{2}).

Preflow-Push method yields O(*V*^{2}*E*) (Section 27.4), and

Lift-to-Front method yields O(*V*^{3}) (Section 27.5).
