dc.description.abstract A recent development in the study the AdS/CFT correspondence is that of `bit threads,' which describe the physical distribution of entanglement in CFTs while simultaneously computing entanglement entropies. Equivalently, we may work with a set of divergenceless vector fields with a collective norm bound called a `Multiflow.' Via analytic ansatz and numerical computation, we demonstrate that the multiflow formalism fails to compute entanglement entropies for crossing boundary regions. We also present two proofs for the assertion that in the absence of crossing boundary regions there exists a multiflow which computes the entropy of entanglement for an arbitrary number and arrangement of boundary regions.
