Longest Hamiltonian in Nodd-Gon

We single out the polygonal paths of nodd -1 order that solve each of the different longest non-cyclic Euclidean Hamiltonian path problems in networks by an arithmetic algorithm. As by product, the procedure determines the winding index of cyclic Hamiltonian polygonals on the vertices of a regular polygon.
