We propose a method for determining the starting temperature in two-stage simulated annealing systems utilizing traditional homogeneous temperature schedules. While most previous work in this area has focused on ad hoc experimentally derived constant starting temperatures for the low-temperature annealing phase, this investigation presents a method for(More)
We propose a two-stage simulated annealing method. While most previous work has focused on ad hoc constant starting temperatures for the low temperature annealing phase, this paper presents a more formal method for starting temperature determination in two-stage simulated annealing systems. We have successfully applied our method to three optimization(More)
