The introduction of a hierarchical annealing algorithm addresses the very large computational costs associated with simulated annealing for the synthesis of binary porous media images. In real-world examples, the large configuration space of such models has led to disappointing performance of annealing approaches. We demonstrate orders-of-magnitude improvement compared to existing results, and discuss the inherent computational difficulties encountered with these types of approaches.
