|Title:||HALIN GRAPHS AND THE TRAVELLING SALESMAN PROBLEM|
|Abstract:||A Halin graph $H = T cup C$ is obtained by imbedding a tree $T$ having no degree two nodes in the plane, and then adding a cycle $C$ to join the leaves of $T$ in such a way that the resulting graph is planar. These graphs are edge minimal 3-connected, hamiltonian, and in general have large numbers of hamilton cycles. We show that for arbitrary real edge costs the travelling salesman problem can be polynomially solved for such a graph, and we give an explicit linear description of the travelling salesman polytope (the convex hull of the incidence vectors of the hamilton cycles) for such a graph.|
