This book aims to educate the readers with extensive information regarding Advanced Simulated Annealing. It is based on statistical mechanics which suggests that molecules in a liquid move freely at high temperatures but their thermal mobility decreases with the slow reduction of temperature. In the final state, a pure crystal is formed, corresponding to a state of minimum energy. This book compiles contributions of scientists, researchers and experts in this field. It aims to benefit students, teachers and researchers in their study of stimulated annealing.
