The traveling salesman problem

ABSTRACT
This paper presents a self-contained introduction into algorithmic and computational aspects of the traveling salesman problem and of related problems, along with their theoretical prerequisites as seen from the point of view of an operations researcher who wants to solve pratical problem instances. Extensive computational results are reported on most of algorithms described. Optimal solutions are reported for instances with sizes up to several thousand nodes as well as heuristic solutions with provably very high quality for larger instances. This is a preliminary version of one of the chapters of the volume "Networks" edited by M.O. Ball, T.L. Magnanti, C.L. Monma, and G.L. Nemhauser, of the series Handbooks in Operations Research and Management Science, to be published by North-Holland, Amsterdam.
