We resolve in the affirmative a question of Boppana and Bui: whether simulated annealing can. with high probability and in polynomial time, find the optimal bisection of a random graph in <G ,,,,! when p I. = @(n.‘-‘) for A 62. (The random graph model ?q,z,,ispecifies a “planted” bisection of density Y, separating two n;‘2-vertex subsets of slightly higher density ~7.) We shoM that simulated “annealing” at an appropriate fixed temperature (i.c.. the Metropolis algorithm) finds the unique… CONTINUE READING
