A new 'Shrink' algorythm resolves the TSP problem at a rate of n^3*7E-5 secs. 100 nodes take 2 seconds on a 1.8Ghz PC running on a QPC2 emulator with a procedural basic. Timings were done by a Professor of mathematics at Delaware State university. The code can surely be optimised, and produces a 94% accurate result as things stand, but this will be improved on. The maths are very simple, but the logic is quite complex. The program was published by the English 'Quanta' QL users group, and is available for programmers to work on.
