Simulated Annealing is a method of simulation in which each entity in the system is perturbed in some characteristics e.g., location due to increasing and decreasing the heat (the energy) of the entire system.
My question is about the application of simulated annealing approach to conditioning simulations. For instance what are the steps to condition a simulation (for example see conditioning point process) to the existing sampling data?

  • $\begingroup$ It is an old question in my mind, let me try find some references. Meanwhile I remember somebody has used SA to condition simulations indirectly by adjusting the objective function. That's all I remember:) $\endgroup$ – Developer Oct 10 '11 at 16:26
