Hamiltonian problem

Hamiltonian problem

(computability)
(Or "Hamilton's problem") A problem in graph theory posed by William Hamilton: given a graph, is there a path through the graph which visits each vertex precisely once (a "Hamiltonian path")? Is there a Hamiltonian path which ends up where it started (a "Hamiltonian cycle" or "Hamiltonian tour")?

Hamilton's problem is NP-complete. It has numerous applications, sometimes completely unexpected, in computing.

The first major breakthrough in the field of DNA computing occurred in 1994, when Adleman use DNA computing to solve the traveling salesman problem [1] which is also known as Hamiltonian problem.
