Workshop Details
Simulated Annealing
06/30/1986 - 07/20/1986
Meeting Description:

The expected focus of the workshop will be the relation between thermodynamics properties of combinatorial problems and the convergence of various annealing schedules. In particular, we will explore the problem of how to select optimal annealing schedules given heat capacities and relaxation times as functions of temperatures.


Workshops at the center are informal gatherings intended to advance the research on site as opposed to communicating findings. While the workshop will have a preselected list of doable and shareable problems, participants are strongly encouraged to add to the pool.

The formate is one formal talk per day with ample time for serious collaboration. As such it is recommended that stay be at least two weeks in duration. The Telluride locale offers ample outdoor attractions which make such stays enjoyable for families as well.
