Simulated annealing

Simulated annealing is a method for optimizing noisy, high-dimensional objective functions using ideas from materials science.

Presentation Summary

In this presentation, I present:

  • Describe the physical annealing process.
  • Show how simulating that process can act as an optimization algorithm.
  • Apply the approach to a simple noisy optimization problem.
