Simulated Annealing Beats Metropolis in Combinatorial Optimization

The Metropolis algorithm is simulated annealing with a fixed temperature.Surprisingly enough, many problems cannot be solved more efficiently by simulated annealing than by the Metropolis algorithm with the best temperature. The problem of finding a natural example (artificial examples are known) where simulated annealing outperforms the Metropolis algorithm for all ... more >>>

Ant Colony Optimization and the Minimum Spanning Tree Problem

Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is a kind of randomized search heuristic that has become very popular for solving problems from combinatorial optimization. Solutions for a given problem are constructed by a random walk on a so-called construction graph. This random walk can be influenced by heuristic information about the problem. ... more >>>
