This page contains supplementary video recordings and a real time simulation applet for the paper:

Computation of the Travelling Salesman Problem by a Shrinking Blob

Jeff Jones and Andrew Adamatzky

 

see pre-print.

 



 

 
Dataset 16 Shrinkage Example

 

 

Reading the tour formed by the blob is performed by manually tracking the periphery of the blob

 

 

Dataset 7 - Each successive run has increasing shrinkage rates and an example of material defect in the sheet is shown in a later example (~43s)

 

 


50 Nodes Example

 

100 Nodes Example
