TL;DR: It is shown that maxπwπ = C* precisely when a certain well-known linear program has an optimal solution in integers.

Abstract: This paper explores new approaches to the symmetric traveling-salesman problem in which 1-trees, which are a slight variant of spanning trees, play an essential role. A 1-tree is a tree together with an additional vertex connected to the tree by two edges. We observe that i a tour is precisely a 1-tree in which each vertex has degree 2, ii a minimum 1-tree is easy to compute, and iii the transformation on "intercity distances" cij â Cij + πi + πj leaves the traveling-salesman problem invariant but changes the minimum 1-tree. Using these observations, we define an infinite family of lower bounds wπ on C*, the cost of an optimum tour. We show that maxπwπ = C* precisely when a certain well-known linear program has an optimal solution in integers. We give a column-generation method and an ascent method for computing maxπwπ, and construct a branch-and-bound method in which the lower bounds wπ control the search for an optimum tour.

TL;DR: An O(n3) heuristic algorithm is described for solving d-city travelling salesman problems (TSP) whose cost matrix satisfies the triangularity condition and a worst-case analysis of this heuristic shows that the ratio of the answer obtained to the optimum TSP solution is strictly less than 3/2.

Abstract: : An O(n sup 3) heuristic algorithm is described for solving n-city travelling salesman problems (TSP) whose cost matrix satisfies the triangularity condition. The algorithm involves as substeps the computation of a shortest spanning tree of the graph G defining the TSP, and the finding of a minimum cost perfect matching of a certain induced subgraph of G. A worst-case analysis of this heuristic shows that the ratio of the answer obtained to the optimum TSP solution is strictly less than 3/2. This represents a 50% reduction over the value 2 which was the previously best known such ratio for the performance of other polynomial-growth algorithms for the TSP.

TL;DR: This note shows that consensus is reached asymptotically for the first two cases if the undirected interaction graph is connected and for the third case if the directed interaction graph has a directed spanning tree and the gain for velocity matching with the group reference velocity is above a certain bound.

Abstract: This note considers consensus algorithms for double-integrator dynamics. We propose and analyze consensus algorithms for double-integrator dynamics in four cases: 1) with a bounded control input, 2) without relative velocity measurements, 3) with a group reference velocity available to each team member, and 4) with a bounded control input when a group reference state is available to only a subset of the team. We show that consensus is reached asymptotically for the first two cases if the undirected interaction graph is connected. We further show that consensus is reached asymptotically for the third case if the directed interaction graph has a directed spanning tree and the gain for velocity matching with the group reference velocity is above a certain bound. We also show that consensus is reached asymptotically for the fourth case if and only if the group reference state flows directly or indirectly to all of the vehicles in the team.
