It might be more helpful to remove the page completely. Albert Einstein has often been misquoted as "Keep it as simple as possible." The complete sentence is "Keep it as simple as possible but no simpler."

The "Travelling Salesman Problem" is not concerned with travelling salesmen. I might have some relevance to the layout of printed circuit boards but is otherwise a mathematical curiosity.

I agree.

Or, maybe, actually making it accurate would be better — This unsigned comment was added by 62.251.121.16 (talk • changes).

By its very nature, the TSP (and related problems, eg. Chinese postman) is a mathematical/Computer science problem. Unlike the Chinese postman, it has a wide variety of uses, and is generally well-known outside the field of math/comp.sci.

Yes, it is a mathematical problem. The page here, however, does not even closely depict it as such. — This unsigned comment was added by 137.229.62.82 (talk • changes).
