In this paper, we consider a special case of the time-dependent traveling salesman problem where the objective is to minimize the sum of all distances traveled from the origin to all other cities. Two exact algorithms, incorporating lower bounds provided by a Lagrangean relaxation of the problem, are presented. We also investigate a heuristic procedure derived from dynamic programming that is able to evaluate the distance from optimality of the produced solution. Computational results for aâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
