Venkatesan Guruswami, Kunal Talwar#### Hardness of Low Congestion Routing in Directed Graphs

Matthew Andrews, Julia Chuzhoy, Venkatesan Guruswami, Sanjeev Khanna, Kunal Talwar, Lisa Zhang

In the undirected Edge-Disjoint Paths problem with Congestion

(EDPwC), we are given an undirected graph with $V$ nodes, a set of

terminal pairs and an integer $c$. The objective is to route as many

terminal pairs as possible, subject to the constraint that at most

$c$ demands can be routed ...

We prove a strong inapproximability result for routing on directed

graphs with low congestion. Given as input a directed graph on $N$

vertices and a set of source-destination pairs that can be connected

via edge-disjoint paths, we prove that it is hard, assuming NP

doesn't have $n^{O(\log\log n)}$ time randomized ...
