The x-and-y-axes travelling salesman problem forms a special case of the Euclidean TSP, where all cities are situated on the x-axis and on the y-axis of an orthogonal coordinate system of the Euclidean plane. By carefully analyzing the underlying combinatorial and geometric structures, we show that this problem can be solved in polynomial time. The running time of the resulting algorithm is quadratic in the number of cities.
