  • The mean field traveling salesman and related problems. Wästlund, Johan // Acta Mathematica;Mar2010, Vol. 204 Issue 1, p91 

    The edges of a complete graph on n vertices are assigned i.i.d. random costs from a distribution for which the interval [0, t] has probability asymptotic to t as t→0 through positive values. In this so called pseudo-dimension 1 mean field model, we study several optimization problems, of...

    We motivate, derive, and implement a multilevel approach to the travelling salesman problem. The resulting algorithm progressively coarsens the problem, initializes a tour, and then employs either the Lin-Kernighan (LK) or the Chained Lin-Kernighan (CLK) algorithm to refine the solution on each...

    We study a scenario in which a firm designs the compensation contract for a salesperson who exerts unobservable effort to increase the level of uncertain demand and, jointly, the firm also decides the inventory level to be stocked. We use a newsvendor-type model in which actual sales depend on...
