The Traveling Salesman Problem An Interview with Dr. Kevin Ziesler on The Traveling Salesman Problem

This is an interview with Kevin Ziesler of the University of Colorado in Boulder, where he was a lecturer in the Mathematics Department and helped teach courses in combinatorics, computer science, statistics and probability. He also had research appointments with the Institute for Scientific Computing Research (ISCR) and the Center for Applied Scientific Computing (CASC) at NCAR/HAO. His Ph.D is from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York under Professor Ronald L. Graham where he developed new tools for solving problems on computers.


Kevin's The Traveling Salesman Problem is well written and easy to understand. There is ample explanation of the problem and how many different forms it can take. He also explains how one can solve it using one of the solutions developed by Graham, if you have access to a computer program. If you don't, he also goes over some other ways you can solve it using pencil and paper, proving that even those who do not use a computer can solve this problem.

Kevin's interview is filled with anecdotes about his academic life along with the time he spent in graduate school at Cornell and how his path eventually led him to Boulder, Colorado where he currently teaches mathematics at CU Boulder.
