Solving TSP by using Lotka-Volterra neural networks

  title={Solving TSP by using Lotka-Volterra neural networks},
  author={Manli Li and Zhang Yi and Min Zhu},
This paper proposes a new approach to solve traveling salesman problem (TSP) by using a class of Lotka–Volterra neural networks (LVNN) with global inhibition. Some stability criteria that ensure the convergence of valid solutions are obtained. It is proved that an equilibrium state is stable if and only if it corresponds to a valid solution of the TSP. Thus, a valid solution can always be obtained whenever the derived. Simulation results illustrate the theoretical analysis. & 2009 Elsevier B.V… CONTINUE READING
