Variable Annealing Length and Parallelism in Simulated Annealing

  title={Variable Annealing Length and Parallelism in Simulated Annealing},
  author={Vincent A. Cicirello},
In this paper, we propose: (a) a restart schedule for an adaptive simulated annealer, and (b) parallel simulated annealing, with an adaptive and parameter-free annealing schedule. The foundation of our approach is the Modified Lam annealing schedule, which adaptively controls the temperature parameter to track a theoretically ideal rate of acceptance of neighboring states. A sequential implementation of Modified Lam simulated annealing is almost parameter-free. However, it requires prior… Expand
