Probably your best bet would be Steven Skiena's book, "Implementing
Discrete Mathematics: Combinatorics and Graph Theory with
Mathematica" [Addison-Wesley 1991]. It includes an entire chapter
on algorithmic graph theory and has specific material on traveling
salesman tours. All of the functions defined in the book are actually
included in each copy of Mathematica in the directory
