Hamiltonian Cycles and the Traveling Salesperson Problem (page 219 in Discrete Source or page 346 in Discrete Mathematics): (See Exercise 3 -- which has an answer in the book -- for another example of an argument showing that a graph is not Hamiltonian.) * Exercise 7. * Exercise 8. * Exercise 10. The example should be a simple graph. * Exercise 11. * Exercise 17. Give the total length of the cycle. (The traveling salesperson problem is stated on page 215 or 342. The research literature tends to use the

A Shortest-Path Algorithm (page 224 in Discrete Source or page 351 in Discrete Mathematics): In the following three exercises, also list the explored (i.e., circled) vertices, in the order in which the algorithm adds them. Note that doing #2 and #3 together saves some work. * Exercise 2. * Exercise 3. * Exercise 5. There is a supplementary webpage on Complexity of Decision Problems....
