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
