Abstract

Human visual/spatial problem solving often requires both global and local information to be processed. But the relationship between those two kinds of information and the way in which they interact with one another during problem solving has not been thoroughly discussed. In the particular setting of solving the traveling salesman problem (TSP), we investigated into the relative roles of global and local information processing. An experiment was conducted to measure the importance of global information and the possible constraints of global information processing on search. A model was built to simulate human TSP performance and was used to investigate further the relationship between global information processing and local information processing. Our model was compared with the human data we collected and with other models of human TSP solving. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
