A Hamiltonian cycle, also called a Hamiltonian circuit, Hamilton cycle, or Hamilton circuit, is a graph cycle (i.e., closed loop) through a graph that visits each node exactly once (Skiena 1990, p. 196).
This is an implementation of the algorithm described by E. M. Palmer in his paper. The algorithm
takes a simple graph that meets Ore's condition (see
and returns a Hamiltonian cycle. The algorithm runs in $O(|V|^2)$ time and uses $O(|V|)$ space.
The original algorithm is described in: Palmer, E. M. (1997), "The hidden algorithm of Ore's theorem on Hamiltonian cycles", Computers & Mathematics with Applications, 34 (11): 113–119, doi:10.1016/S0898-1221(97)00225-3 See wikipedia for a short description of Ore's theorem and Palmer's algorithm.
