In this study, the three new heuristic algorithms which are proposed in [1] for the solution of traveling salesman problem is developed. In addition, the new versions of 2-opt and 3-opt algorithms are proposed. These algorithms are tested and their performances are compared with the well-known heuristic algorithms such as Nearest Neighbor, and Greedy algorithms.
