Abstract

This paper presents Highest Suffix method for solving the classical symmetric traveling salesman problem. This concept is an alternative method for solving Traveling Salesman problem (TSP). It is possible to further improve a TSP tour that cannot be improved by other local search methods. To test the performance of the proposed method, two examples are solved here. This is a new approach to solve the classical symmetric travelling salesman problem by highest suffix method. So, this paper shows that the proposed algorithm is efficient for solving the Traveling Salesman problem (TSP).
