The Minimum Latency Problem Is NP-Hard for Weighted Trees

  title={The Minimum Latency Problem Is NP-Hard for Weighted Trees},
  author={Ren{\'e} Sitters},
In the minimum latency problem (MLP) we are given n points v1, . . . , vn and a distance d(vi, vj) between any pair of points. We have to find a tour, starting at v1 and visiting all points, for which the sum of arrival times is minimal. The arrival time at a point vi is the traveled distance from v1 to vi in the tour. The minimum latency problem is MAX-SNP-hard for general metric spaces, but the complexity for the problem where the metric is given by an edge-weighted tree has been a long… CONTINUE READING
