Simulated Annealing, Theory with Applications


Edited by: Rui Chibante
ISBN 978-953-307-134-3, Hard cover, 292 pages
Publisher: Sciyo
Publication date: August 2010
Subject: Global Optimization

The book contains 15 chapters presenting recent contributions of top researchers working with Simulated Annealing (SA). Although it represents a small sample of the research activity on SA, the book will certainly serve as a valuable tool for researchers interested in getting involved in this multidisciplinary field. In fact, one of the salient features is that the book is highly multidisciplinary in terms of application areas since it assembles experts from the fields of Biology, Telecommunications, Geology, Electronics and Medicine.
