We introduce a new extension of Punnen’s exponential neighborhood for the traveling salesman problem (TSP). In contrast to an interesting generalization of Punnen’s neighborhood by De Franceschi, Fischetti and Toth (2005), our neighborhood is searchable in polynomial time, a feature that invites exploitation by heuristic and metaheuristic procedures for the TSP and related problems, including … Read more
