Relaxing Synchronization in Distributed Simulated Annealing
February 1995 (vol. 6 no. 2)
pp. 189-195

Abstract—This paper presents a cost error measurement scheme and relaxed synchronization method, for simulated annealing on a distributed memory multicomputer, which predicts the amount of cost error that an algorithm will tolerate. An adaptive error control method is developed and implemented on an Intel iPSC/2.

Index Terms—Optimization, partial synchrony, state maintenance, cost error, parallelism, algorithms.
