Lecture 13: 03/07/2007 Recall: Simulated Annealing Given S, є : S->R, find x є S minimizing є(x) (є(i)). SA solution : for each of a bunch of T-values, “run metropolis” at each T using some Q(I,j) (symmetric) for “proposal’s” acceptance prob ( , )= < ( ) -( - ) > ( ) α i j 1 if ϵj ϵ i e ϵj ϵi kT if ϵj ϵ i At “end of run,” use “best I” to seed another run at a lower T-value, etc. One hopes that , as T->0, end up with populations of near minima for є. More precisely: have a sequence {T n }; T n ->0, n->∞. This is called an annealing schedule . For each n, run metropolis at temp T n . This is same as a given Markov chain on S; get a population of points in S. Let S * =set of all i є S maximizing є. Let π Tn =unique stationary distribution of “T n -chain.” Let π Tn (S * )=”amount of probability” concentrated on S * at “end” of T n-mn (or is mn up???) = ∈ * ( ) j S πTn j Can prove: →∞[ ( *)]= limn πTn S 1 n->∞ as temp->0 Let X k,Tn = state at time k of T n chain. The last equation says: →∞ →∞ , *= limn limk ProbXk Tn S 1 Inside of []=π Tn (S * ) A stronger convergence result (due to B. Hajek and J. Tstsiklis (at MIT)):

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
