## Hungarian Algorithm for Assignment Problem | Set 2 (Implementation)

Input: arr[][] = {{3, 5}, {10, 1}} Output: 4 Explanation: The optimal assignment is to assign job 1 to the 1st worker, job 2 to the 2nd worker. Hence, the optimal cost is 3 + 1 = 4. Input: arr[][] = {{2500, 4000, 3500}, {4000, 6000, 3500}, {2000, 4000, 2500}} Output: 4 Explanation: The optimal assignment is to assign job 2 to the 1st worker, job 3 to the 2nd worker and job 1 to the 3rd worker. Hence, the optimal cost is 4000 + 3500 + 2000 = 9500.

Different approaches to solve this problem are discussed in this article .

- For each row of the matrix, find the smallest element and subtract it from every element in its row.
- Repeat the step 1 for all columns.
- Cover all zeros in the matrix using the minimum number of horizontal and vertical lines.
- Test for Optimality : If the minimum number of covering lines is N , an optimal assignment is possible. Else if lines are lesser than N , an optimal assignment is not found and must proceed to step 5.
- Determine the smallest entry not covered by any line. Subtract this entry from each uncovered row, and then add it to each covered column. Return to step 3.

Consider an example to understand the approach:

Let the 2D array be: 2500 4000 3500 4000 6000 3500 2000 4000 2500 Step 1: Subtract minimum of every row. 2500, 3500 and 2000 are subtracted from rows 1, 2 and 3 respectively. 0 1500 1000 500 2500 0 0 2000 500 Step 2: Subtract minimum of every column. 0, 1500 and 0 are subtracted from columns 1, 2 and 3 respectively. 0 0 1000 500 1000 0 0 500 500 Step 3: Cover all zeroes with minimum number of horizontal and vertical lines. Step 4: Since we need 3 lines to cover all zeroes, the optimal assignment is found. 2500 4000 3500 4000 6000 3500 2000 4000 2500 So the optimal cost is 4000 + 3500 + 2000 = 9500

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

Time Complexity: O(N 3 ) Auxiliary Space: O(N 2 )

The function find_matching takes 3 inputs:

- G = the bipartite graph (a dictionary of dictionaries*)
- matching_type = 'max' or 'min' (maximum-weighted matching or minimum-weighted matching)
- return_type = 'list' or 'total' (return a list of matched vertices and weights or the total weight*)

## Example 1 (maximum-weighted matching)

Suppose you're choosing 11 starting positions for a soccer team.

The 11 players submit their top 3 position choices, and it is your job to create the optimal team.

The situation can be modeled with a weighted bipartite graph :

Define a weighted bipartite graph in the following manner:

thus defining a complete bipartite graph G = (L ∪ R, E) with:

- Vertex set L (Players) = {'Ann', 'Ben', 'Cal', 'Dan', 'Ela', 'Fae', 'Gio', 'Hol', 'Ian', 'Jon', 'Kay'}
- Vertex set R (Positions) = {'GK', 'LB', 'SWP', 'CB', 'RB', 'LW', 'CM', 'CAM', 'RW', 'F', 'S'}
- Edge set E = { e = (Player, Position) : for all Players, for all Positions}
- w( Player , Position ) = 3 for a first choice
- w( Player , Position ) = 2 for a second choice
- w( Player , Position ) = 1 for a third choice
- w( Player , Position ) = 0 otherwise

Then pass the graph as an input:

If you only need the total weight:

Suppose you manage a group of drivers delivering packages to various locations.

## Hungarian Algorithm Introduction & Python Implementation

How to use hungarian method to resolve the linear assignment problem..

## So… What is the linear assignment problem?

The cost of producing different goods by different producers:

## Hungarian Algorithm & Python Code Step by Step

## Step 0. Prepare Operations

The above code randomly generates a 5x5 cost matrix of integers between 0 and 10.

## Step 1. Every column and every row subtract its internal minimum

And the current code is like this:

## Step 2.1. Min_zero_row Function Implementation

Transform matrix to boolean matrix:

Therefore, we can use the “min_zero_row” function to find the corresponding row.

The row which contains the least 0:

Hence, the boolean matrix will look like this:

The boolean matrix after the first process. The fourth row has been changed to all False.

The possible answer composition:

## Step 2.2. Mark_matrix Function Implementation

- Mark rows that do not contain marked 0 elements and store row indexes in the non_marked_row
- Search non_marked_row element, and find out if there are any unmarked 0 elements in the corresponding column
- Store the column indexes in the marked_cols
- Compare the column indexes stored in marked_zero and marked_cols
- If a matching column index exists, the corresponding row_index is saved to non_marked_rows
- Next, the row indexes that are not in non_marked_row are stored in marked_rows

## Step 3. Identify the Result

After Step 1 & 2 , the corresponding matrix, marked_rows, and marked_cols are as follows:

The sum of the lengths of Marked_Rows and Marked_Cols is 4 (less than 5).

## Step 4. Adjust Matrix

The whole function can be separated into three steps:

## Step 5. Calculate the Answer

The minimum composition of the assigned matrix and the minimum sum is 18.

The maximum composition of the assigned matrix and the maximum sum is 43.

The code of the Answer_Calculator function is as follows:

The complete code is as follows:

## The Assignment Problem (Using Hungarian Algorithm)

## What is the Assignment Problem?

- The number of assignments and agents should be the same.
- Each agent should be assigned only one job and every job should be assigned only one agent
- We want to find the feasible solution which will consume the minimum cost

## Applications of the Assignment Problem

Few applications of the Assignment Problem are:

- Assigning machines to factory orders.
- Assigning sales/marketing people to territories.
- Assigning teachers to classes.
- Assigning police vehicles to patrolling areas.

## Few Approaches to solve the Assignment Problem

- Approach 1: Brute Force Here we try all the combinations one by one to find the optimal solution. This is a tedious approach because as the number of tasks and cranes go on increasing , the number of calculations also increase. The complexity is n! which is very inefficient.
- Approach 2: Graph Approach The algorithm is easier to describe if we formulate the problem using a bipartite graph. We have a complete bipartite graph G=(S, T; E) with n worker vertices S and n job vertices (T), and each edge has a nonnegative cost c(i,j). We want to find a perfect matching with a minimum total cost.
- Approach 3: Greedy Approach In this case, the algorithm will choose the lowest cost worker to be assigned to the task as the first assignment, then choose the next lowest cost worker to be assigned to the task, and so on until all tasks have been assigned. The algorithm repeats this procedure until all workers have at least one task. Greedy algorithms try to get close to the optimal solution by improving a candidate solution iteratively, with no guarantee that an optimal solution will actually be found.
- Approach 4: Hungarian Algorithm The Hungarian Algorithm is a combinatorial optimization algorithm which is a faster approach which solves the problem in polynomial time complexity. We see the Hungarian approach ahead.

## The Hungarian Algorithm

1.Find the minimum element from each row and substract that value from all the elements of the row.

3. Let m=minimum number of lines required to cover all the zeroes in the table

4. while(m!=number of row/columns)

- Find the minimum element from the uncovered elements
- Substract this element from all the other uncovered elements
- Add this element to the elements where the lines are intersecting

## Solving an Example Using Hungarian Problem

STEP 1: Finding the minimum from each row and substracting it from all the other row elements

STEP 2: Finding the minimum from each column and substracting it from all the other column elements

STEP 3: Finding the minimum number of lines required to cover all the zeroes

Step 4.iv. Finding the minimum number of lines required to cover all the zeroes.

## Looking for a C/C++ implementation of the Hungarian method for real-valued cost matrix

Some implementation I found, such as this one , only work for integer costs :(

Any suggestions are very appreciated!

- 1 $\begingroup$ Wouldn't it work to multiply your cost by a big constant and take the integer part of it ? so that you could directly use the link mentioned in the question, at the expense of loosing a little bit of precision, if you can afford it. $\endgroup$ – BrunoLevy Nov 7, 2015 at 10:15
- $\begingroup$ Go to CRAN and download the "clue" package source . The LSAP code contains a C implementation of the Hungarian method. $\endgroup$ – Biswajit Banerjee Nov 7, 2015 at 19:36

## Hungarian Method

## Hungarian Method to Solve Assignment Problems

## What is an Assignment Problem?

## Hungarian Method Steps

- Analyse the rows one by one until you find a row with precisely one unmarked zero. Encircle this lonely unmarked zero and assign it a task. All other zeros in the column of this circular zero should be crossed out because they will not be used in any future assignments. Continue in this manner until you’ve gone through all of the rows.
- Examine the columns one by one until you find one with precisely one unmarked zero. Encircle this single unmarked zero and cross any other zero in its row to make an assignment to it. Continue until you’ve gone through all of the columns.

Step 4 – Perform the Optimal Test

- The present assignment is optimal if each row and column has exactly one encircled zero.
- The present assignment is not optimal if at least one row or column is missing an assignment (i.e., if at least one row or column is missing one encircled zero). Continue to step 5. Subtract the least cost element from all the entries in each column of the final cost matrix created in step 1 and ensure that each column has at least one zero.

Step 5 – Draw the least number of straight lines to cover all of the zeros as follows:

(a) Highlight the rows that aren’t assigned.

(b) Label the columns with zeros in marked rows (if they haven’t already been marked).

(d) Continue with (b) and (c) until no further marking is needed.

Step 7 – Continue with steps 1 – 6 until you’ve found the highest suitable assignment.

## Hungarian Method Example

With 5 jobs and 5 men, the stated problem is balanced.

When the zeros are assigned, we get the following:

The present assignment is optimal because each row and column contain precisely one encircled zero.

Where 1 to II, 2 to IV, 3 to I, 4 to V, and 5 to III are the best assignments.

Hence, z = 15 + 14 + 21 + 20 + 16 = 86 hours is the optimal time.

The Hungarian Method: The following algorithm applies the above theorem to a given n × n cost matrix to ﬁnd an optimal assignment. Step 1. Subtract the smallest entry in each row from all the entries of its row. Step 2. Subtract the smallest entry in each column from all the entries of its column. Step 3.

The Hungarian algorithm, aka Munkres assignment algorithm, utilizes the following theorem for polynomial runtime complexity ( worst case O (n3)) and guaranteed optimality: If a number is added to or subtracted from all of the entries of any one row or column of a cost matrix, then an optimal assignment for the resulting cost matrix is also an …

This function is an implementation of the Hungarian algorithm (also known as the Kuhn-Munkres algorithm) which runs in O (N3) time. It solves the optimal assignment problem. Below is the implementation of the above approach: Python import dlib def minCost (arr): assignment = dlib.max_cost_assignment (arr)

The Hungarian method is a combinatorial optimization algorithm that solves the assignment problem in polynomial time and which anticipated later primal-dual methods.

This is the assignment problem, for which the Hungarian Algorithm offers a solution. Notice: although no one has chosen LB, the algorithm will still assign a player there.

1) Find the minimum number in each row and subtract it from all elements in the row. 2) Find the minimum number in each column and subtract it from all elements in the column. 3) Cover all zeroes with minimum number of vertical and/or horizontal lines. 4) If the number of the lines is N, then we have found our assignment.

The assignment problem is a special case of the transportation problem, which in turn is a special case of the min-cost flow problem, so it can be solved using algorithms that solve the more general cases. Also, our problem is a special case of binary integer linear programming problem (which is NP-hard).
