Abstract

The Traveling Tournament Problem(TTP) is a combinatorial optimization problem where we have to give a scheduling algorithm which minimizes the total distance traveled by all the participating teams of a double round-robin tournament maintaining given constraints. Most of the instances of this problem with more than ten teams are still unsolved. By definition of the problem the number of teams participating has to be even. There are different variants of this problem depending on the constraints. In this problem, we consider the case where number of teams is a multiple of four and a team can not play more than two consecutive home or away matches. Our scheduling algorithm gives better result than the existing best result for number of teams less or equal to 32.
