# Why does the Ford-Fulkerson Maximum flow algorithm not work for irrational capacities?

Can anyone help me understand why the Ford-Fulkerson algorithm does not work in the case of irrational capacities?

• Take a look in the wikipedia page for the algorithm, there is a non-terminating example there – nir shahar Jun 16 '20 at 5:02
