This paper proposes a parallel model of the self- organizing map (SOM) neural network applied to the Euclidean traveling salesman problem (TSP) and intended for implementation on the graphics processing unit (GPU) platform. The plane is partitioned into an appropriate number of cellular units, that are each responsible of a certain part of the data and network. The advantage of the parallel algorithm is that it is decentralized and based on data decomposition, rather than based on data duplication, or mixed sequential/parallel solving, as often with GPU implementation of optimization metaheuristics. The processing units and the required memory are with linear increasing relationship to the problem size, which makes the model able to deal with very large scale problems in a massively parallel way. The approach is applied to Euclidean TSPLIB problems and National TSPs with up to 33708 cities on both GPU and CPU, and these two types of implementation are compared and discussed.
