dc.description.abstractSubmodular functions are common in combinatorics; examples include the cut capacity function of a graph and the rank function of a matroid. The submodular function minimization problem generalizes the classical minimum cut problem and also contains a number of other combinatorial optimization problems as special cases. In this thesis, we study submodular function minimization and two related problems: matroid polyhedron membership and matroid intersection. A significant contribution concerns algorithms for the latter problems due to Cunningham. In particular, we identify and correct errors in the original proofs of the running time bounds for these algorithms.en
