Since its inception, it has become the poster child for computational complexity research. A number of problems have been transformed to a TSP problem and its application base now extends into scheduling, manufacturing, routing, and logistics. With the advent of high-performance computing and advanced meta-heuristics such as GPU programming and swarm-based algorithms, the TSP problem is positioned firmly as the go-to problem for the development of the next generation of high-performance intelligent heuristics. This book looks to leverage some of these new paradigms for both students and researchers in this field.
