Guide for the 380CT Assignment on TSP

Your work must be done in Template.ipynb. The actual part you need to work on is the Metaheuristics section. The rest is meant to introduce you to the basics.

Start by first creating your repository, from this, by clicking on the green button Use this template. Then, clone your repository to your local machine. You can then open the notebook in Jupyter.

  • Now you can use Template.ipynb to start writing the part you need to submit (about meta-heuristics).
  • I propose you work as follows (You don't have to follow this though!):
    • Ensure you are familiar with the TSP problem and 2-opt local search techniques. (See this Wikipedia article)
    • Watch the guest lecture videos and check the literature related to TSP and the meta-heuristics you are thinking of.
    • Write the code for the meta-heuristic that you have chosen. I recommend GRASP.
  • You may try Google Colab and/or Microsoft Azure if that helps you work better, but please be aware that I am not sure about their GDPR compliance.

I should emphasise here that "exhaustive search" and "greedy" are *not meta-heuristics, nor are 2-opt. Ensure this is clear to you.
