    I'm not too good on this but I'll have a go trying to help you! :smile:

    As far as I understand, a cutset is "a set of edges whose removal would break up the graph into two or more components".

    Consider a spanning tree T in a graph G. A fundamental cutset S is a cutset which contains exactly one branch from T (and also some other chords if necessary). http://rbmix.com/math/graphth/grp.php

    There's numerous sources around online, try your own Google search, and of course there should be some content in good ol' books. :wink:
