Date Gap Lower Bound Tour
6.10.02 6765 - Best of 10 runs of LKH, each with n trials. Total running time 2700 seconds on an AMD Althlon 1900+ processor (1.6 GHz).
1.11.03 Optimal 6764 - Concorde (default settings) using QSopt as an LP solver. The run was carried out on a Sun V480 (900 MHz UltraSparc III), in 1035677 seconds, using 2209 nodes in the branch-and-bound-tree. 6764 - Found during the branching run.


1. Concorde is our linear-programming based TSP solver.

2. linkern is an implementation of Martin, Otto, and Felten's Chained Lin-Kernighan heuristic. It is included in the Concorde code.

3. LKH is Keld Helsgaun's powerful implementation of the Lin-Kernighan heuristic.
