In Pursuit of the Traveling Salesman by Cook, William J.
In Pursuit of the Traveling Salesman: Mathematics at the Limit of Computation
by Cook, William J.
 
It's one of the classic conundrums of mathematics: What is the shortest possible route for a traveling salesman seeking to visit each city on a list exactly once and return to his city of origin? This volume leads readers on a mathematical excursion, picking up the salesman's trail in the 1800s when an Irish mathematician first defined the problem, and venturing to the furthest limits of today's state-of-the-art attempts to solve it.
