tsp_brute is a MATLAB program which solves small versions of the traveling salesman problem, using brute force.
The user must prepare a file beforehand, containing the city-to-city distances. The program will request the name of this file, and then read it in. An example of such a file is:
0 3 4 2 7 3 0 4 6 3 4 4 0 5 8 2 6 5 0 6 7 3 8 6 0

tsp_brute is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
CHANGE_MAKING, a MATLAB library which considers the change making problem, in which a given sum is to be formed using coins of various denominations.
CITIES, a MATLAB library which handles various problems associated with a set of "cities" on a map.
COMBINATION_LOCK, a MATLAB program which simulates the process of determining the secret combination of a lock.
PARTITION_PROBLEM, a MATLAB library which seeks solutions of the partition problem, splitting a set of integers into two subsets with equal sum.
SATISFY, a MATLAB program which demonstrates, for a particular circuit, an exhaustive search for solutions of the circuit satisfiability problem.
SUBSET_SUM, a MATLAB library which seeks solutions of the subset sum problem.
TSP, a dataset directory which contains test data for the traveling salesperson problem;
tsp_descent is a MATLAB program which is given a city-to-city distance map, chooses an initial tour at random, and then tries a number of simple variations, seeking to quickly find a tour of lower cost.
tsp_greedy, a MATLAB program which reads a file of city-to-city distances, picks a starting city, and then successively visits the nearest unvisited city.
tsp_random, a MATLAB program which reads a file of city-to-city distances, and then randomly samples a number of possible tours, to quickly seek a tour of lower length.
