Self Annealing: Unifying Deterministic Annealing and Relaxation Labelling

  title={Self Annealing: Unifying Deterministic Annealing and Relaxation Labelling},
  author={Anand Rangarajan},
Deterministic annealing and relaxation labeling algorithms for classification and matching are presented and discussed. A new approach—self annealing—is introduced to bring deterministic annealing and relaxation labeling into accord. Self annealing results in an emergent linear schedule for winner-take-all and linear assignment problems. Self annihilation, a generalization of self annealing is capable of performing the useful function of symmetry breaking. The original relaxation labeling… CONTINUE READING
