I have done a number of applications that have a flavor of the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). That is, they concern themselves with visiting a number of locations in an efficient manner. None of these applications have ever concerned themselves…

The Traveling Salesperson Problem (TSP) is a well known problem with many applications. One such application could be visiting all the baseball stadiums in Major League Baseball. These type of trips (or subsets of it) are the passion of many…

In a previous post, we discussed the problem of determining an efficient route to visit every county. Part of that post explicated the difficulty of even defining the problem. In this post, let’s take a look at using space filling…

i was reading a bicycle tourist’s idea of visiting every county in his home state. He had diligently chipped away at the goal for a number of years, visiting a few at a time. The question occurred to me as…

In a couple of previous posts, I reviewed the concept of using space filling curves as a heuristic for producing decent solutions for the traveling salesman problem (TSP). The attraction of this approach to me was the simplicity of implementation.…

As mentioned in a previous post, I had taken an interest in space filling curves as a method for approaching the traveling salesman problem. Bartholdi (link) presented an algorithm (p. 20) for generating such curves written in Modula-2. In this…

A number of projects I have done have had the flavor of the Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP). That is, they essentially look to solve a problem of visiting a number of sites of interest in an efficient manner. These include…

Whenever I make any sort of reference to the traveling (travelling) salesman problem (TSP), I can never remember the spelling of the adjective. I was particularly vexed when I used the word in the title of one of the sites,…
