Stability Analysis for the Modification Method under the A Priori Strategy of the PTSP

Mohamed Abdellahi Amar, Walid Khaznaji
2020 IEEE Access  
An exact Branch and Bound is used for recognizing the TSPs that are not stable.  ...  We propose in this paper a new formulation for the stability of the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) compared with its probabilistic version, the Probabilistic Traveling Salesman Problem (PTSP).  ...  So we present here, the different TSP detected unstable. A. PROBABILISTIC BRANCH AND BOUND ALGORITHM The Branch and Bound algorithm that we use here was proposed by Amar et al. [3] .  ...

In Pursuit of the Traveling Salesman: Mathematics at the Limits of Computation

Jan Karel Lenstra, David Shmoys
2016 Notices of the American Mathematical Society  
The TSP is a case in point. In fact, many of the concepts and techniques of combinatorial optimization were originally conceived for the TSP.  ...  notices of the AMs 635 BOOK REVIEW The traveling salesman problem, or TSP for short, poses both a complexity question and a computational challenge.  ...  It should be noted that TSP history runs parallel to the development of algorithms for general integer linear ity constraints.  ...

Computational Complexity for Physicists [article]

Stephan Mertens
2002 arXiv   pre-print
These lecture notes are an informal introduction to the theory of computational complexity and its links to quantum computing and statistical mechanics.  ...  The textbook formula is a particular algorithm, and the time complexity of an algorithm is only an upper bound for the inherent complexity of a problem.  ...  In fact we will see in section 2.3.1 that there exists a polynomial algorithm for TSP(D) if and only if there exists a polynomial algorithm for TSP.  ...

Parallelized solution to the asymmetric travelling salesman problem using central processing unit acceleration

Akschat Arya, Boominathan Perumal, Santhi Krishnan
2022 Indonesian Journal of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science  
In order to find the exact optimal solution, we have used the held-karp algorithm involving dynamic programming and to reduce the time taken to find the optimal path, we have used a multi-threaded approach  ...  This method is an extension of a well researched solution to the TSP; however, this method shows that solutions to computationally intensive problems involving sub-problems such as the asymmetic travelling  ...  Li et al. have provided an improved multicore based parallel branch and bound algorithm to solve classic TSP with its shortcomings in [24] .  ...

Ant Colony Optimization: A Component-Wise Overview [chapter]

Manuel López-Ibáñez, Thomas Stützle, Marco Dorigo
2018 Handbook of Heuristics  
The indirect communication and foraging behavior of certain species of ants has inspired a number of optimization algorithms for NP-hard problems.  ...  In addition, the chapter introduces a software framework that unifies the implementation of these ACO algorithms for two example problems, the traveling salesman problem and the quadratic assignment problem  ...  Thus, a natural extension of ACO is to make use of tree search techniques such as branch-and-bound.  ...
