The bet result so far was recently obtained by Guedj and Zeriahi that were able to define the maximal flow for any initial current with zero Lelong number.
The International Prostate Symptom Index (IPSS) and quality of life (QoL), maximal flow rate (Qmax) and post-void residual (PVR) were examined pre-operatively and postoperatively during follow-up.
According to maximal flow and minimal cut of network information flow, the maximal value W of flow that from source S to information sink T equals to the capacity of its minimal cut.

It featured the maximal flow of 770 mm, the flow time into the diameter of 500 mm--6 s and the air content--4.
In order to make a valid comparison of tidal flow and maximal flow, the tidal breathing loop must be plotted at the correct point in the lung volume history.
For this study, multiple lung function tests were performed and significant changes were noted in four measurements: the FVC, or forced vital capacity, which reflects the volume of air that can be blown out after fully inhaling; the FEV1, or forced expiratory volume in 1 second, which is the volume of air that can forcibly be blown out in one second, after fully inhaling; the FEF, or forced expiratory flow, which reflects the flow of air coming out of the lungs during the middle portion of a forced exhalation; and the PEF, or peak expiratory flow, which is the maximal flow achieved when air is forcibly exhaled immediately after being inhaled.
Maximal flow velocity in the middle cerebral artery is now accepted as the best non-invasive method to detect fetal anaemia and has proved extremely useful to monitor pregnancies with red cell iso-immunisation, non-immune hydrops or fetal infection.
