A.F.C algorithm

The most efficient algorithm for T.S.P

Five years of R&D resulted in this fully functionnal polynomial approximation for the Traveller Salesman Problem. With a 10% average deviation from optimal tour and a N.Log(N) complexity, this algorithmic solution is the most efficient known solution for this famous NP-Hard problem.

Following are :

- a live demo to see the algorithm at work. You can run this demo both with randomly generated problems or with known TSP problems provided in tsplib format.

- some benchmarks performed both with random problems and known TSP problem.

Contact the author for any inquiry.
