The Traveling Salesman Problem with Distances One and Two

The TSP with distances one and two is the following optimization problem: given an undirected complete graph G=(V,E) with costs on the edges as either one or two, find a minimum cost tour through all the vertices V. In the talk, an illustration of previous 7/6-factor approximation algorithm of Papadimitriou and Yannakakis will be given followed by a sketch of our improvement.
