We present a pseudo-polinomial algorithm that computes a maximum flow of minimum cost for N in time O( X^(3/4)m* \sqrt{logn}), where X is the cost of the flow. This improves upon previously known methods for networks where the minimum cost of the flow is small. We also show an application of our flow algorithm to a well-known graph drawing problem. Namely, we show how to compute a planar orthogonal drawing with the minimum number of bends for an n-vertex embedded planar graph in time O(n^(7/4)* \sqrt{logn}). This is the firs subquadratic algorithm for bend minimization. The previous best bound for this problem was O(n²logn).
