When, by the woodland ways,
The traveller saw the wild deer drink,
Or crop the birchen sprays.

Through the long weary day

Cast down and faint, and travel-worn.

One well known relative of CTD is the travelling salesman problem where the challenge is to connect some points in by shortest possible route.

This says, in other words, that almost every sample path of the random walk by mapping classes has an associated Teichm¨uller geodesic that tracks it sublinearly while it travels in the thick part.
Thin triangles and a multiplicative ergodic theorem for Teichm\"uller geometry
In, it was argued that some current deviations for the WASEP on a ring are achieved by a traveling wave.
Current large deviations for Asymmetric Exclusion Processes with open boundaries
We estimate the UV field at any given position in the disk by assuming that interstellar photons hit the disk vertically and that stellar photons travel horizontally.

During this time, the random walker has traveled a typical distance l given by l ∼ √κt∗, where κ is the diffusion constant.
Distance traveled by random walkers before absorption in a random medium
By exploiting the Lagrangian structure we were able to obtain certain general relations among the conserved quantities (derived from an energy-momentum tensor) and how these quantities depend on the velocity of a traveling wave solution.
Some General Results for Multi-dimensional Compactonsin Generalized N-dimensional KdV Equations
The ensemble of surviving H atoms has a lower bulk velocity than predicted by the classical model, which leads to a further enhancement of the excess, because the ionization has more time to eliminate the atoms traveling with a smaller speed.

The method applies to other types of travelling solutions as well and we have emphasized this by constructing the cnoidal solutions of the mKdV and the Boussinesq equations starting with that of the KdV equation.
A simple and direct method for generating travelling wave solutions for nonlinear equations
By traveling within a strongly connected digraph associated to sufficiently random 8-bit sequences, one can produce arbitrarily long binary sequences that consistently look “random enough”.
