Abstract
Using computer experiments on a simple three-state system and an NP-complete system of permanents we compare different proposed simulated annealing schedules in order to find the cooling strategy which has the least total entropy production during the annealing process for given initial and final states and fixed number of iterations. The schedules considered are constant thermodynamic speed, exponential, logarithmic, and linear cooling...
