# Synonymise [tsp] and [traveling-salesman]

I've already seen the tag on the site but not . I think the least is to synonymize them. Similarly, we can do that for and .

P.S: Since at the time of posting this, there is still no conclusion on whether to include the word "problem" for classical problems as mentioned here, I left them out of my tag suggestions.

• @MarcoLübbecke the same conversation happened below under Larry's post ;) – EhsanK Jun 12 at 20:40
• Should we also add bin-packing and bpp? – mrBen Jun 13 at 11:57
• @mrBen I'm not too keen on bpp as it's not as widely-used, IMO, as the other abbreviations. However, you can create a new post and suggest that and let the community decide. – EhsanK Jun 13 at 13:22

I'd vote for being the master and being a synonym. Same for (master) and (synonym).

• traveling-salesman is also called salesperson, saleswoman, sales agent, etc. etc. So maybe just tsp? In the description it can shortly mention traveling salesperson.. – independentvariable May 31 at 22:39
• Personally I think [tsp] is too abbreviated, and non-intuitive to newcomers. Although the problem goes by other names, traveling salesman is by far the most common, and I think that makes the most sense as the tag. – LarrySnyder610 Jun 1 at 0:40
• The valid spelling as per English rules is travelling, not traveling, right? – double-beep Jun 1 at 6:13
• No, one L for US English. – LarrySnyder610 Jun 1 at 11:05
• Ah, ok, I thought this rule applied also for US-English $\rlap{\color{red}{\Rule{12em}{1em}{0.75em}}}\\$ – double-beep Jun 1 at 14:53
