NAME

SimulatedAnnealing - An operator that performs the simulated annealing algorithm on an individual, using an external freezing schedule

SYNOPSIS

  #Define an algorithm
  my $m  = new Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::BitFlip; #Changes a single bit
  my $freezer = new Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op:LinearFreezer( $initTemp );
  my $sa = new Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::SimulatedAnnealing( $eval, $m, $freezer, $initTemp, $minTemp, $numChanges );

Base Class

Algorithm::Evolutionary::Op::Base

DESCRIPTION

Simulated Annealing

METHODS

new( $evaluation_function, $change_operator, $freezer[, $initial_temperature] [,$minimum_temperature] [,$number_of_changes], [,$verbose] )

Creates a simulated annealing object

run( $individual )

Applies the algorithm to the individual, returns the resulting individual when the min temperature is reached. Same as apply in other operators
