Abstract The problem of determining whether it is possible for a set of “free-running” processes to become deadlocked is considered. It is assumed that any request by a process is immediately granted as long as there are enough free resource units to satisfy the request. The question of whether or not there exists a polynomial algorithm for predicting deadlock in a “claim-limited” serially reusable resource system has been open. An algorithm employing a network flow technique is presented for this purpose. Its running time is bounded by $\textit{O}(\textit{mn}1.5)$ if the system consists of $\textit{n}$ processes sharing $\textit{m}$ types of serially reusable resources.
