We propose a new global optimization method (Simulated Tempering) for simulating effectively a system with a rough free-energy landscape (i.e., many coexisting states) at finite nonzero temperature. This method is related to simulated annealing, but here the temperature becomes a dynamic variable, and the system is always kept at equilibrium. We analyse the method on the Random Field Ising Model, and we find a dramatic improvement over conventional Metropolis and cluster methods. We analyse and… CONTINUE READING
