### Abstract

The first computer implementation of the Dantzig-Fulkerson-Johnson cutting-plane method for solving the traveling salesman problem, written by Martin, used subtour inequalities as well as cutting planes of Gomory’s type. The practice of looking for and using cuts that match prescribed templates in conjunction with Gomory cuts was continued in computer codes of Miliotis, Land, and Fleischmann. Grötschel, Padberg, and Hong advocated a different policy, where the template paradigm is the only source of cuts; furthermore, they argued for drawing the templates exclusively from the set of linear inequalities that induce facets of the TSP polytope. These policies were adopted in the work of Crowder and Padberg, in the work of Grötschel and Holland, and in the work of Padberg and Rinaldi; their computer codes produced the most impressive computational TSP successes of the nineteen eighties. Eventually, the template paradigm became the standard frame of reference for cutting planes in the TSP. The purpose of this paper is to describe a technique
