Abstract .Traveling Salesman Problem (TSP) is one of the most common studied problems in combinatorial optimization. Given the list of cities and distances between them, the problem is to find the shortest tour possible which visits all the cities in list exactly once and ends in the city where it starts. Despite the Traveling Salesman Problem is NP-Hard, a lot of methods and solutions are proposed to the problem. One of them is Genetic Algorithm (GA). GA is a simple but an efficient heuristic method that can be used to solve Traveling Salesman Problem. In this paper, we will show a parallel genetic algorithm implementation on MapReduce framework in order to solve Traveling Salesman Problem. MapReduce is a framework used to support distributed computation on clusters of computers. We used free licensed Hadoop implementation as MapReduce framework.
