Simulated Annealing

A global minimum/maximum can be found amoungst local minima/maxima

Presentation Summary

In these slides, I present:

  • Simulated Annealing


  • example 1: Simulated annealing code that minimizes objective function.
  • module: Module with simulated annealing class.
  • example 2: Applies simulated annealing algorithm to travelling salesman problem.
