Abstract:

Pincus 1968 formula for the unique global minimum of a continuous function on a concept set in superscript n is extended to finite multiple optima and to discrete and special variance. The impacts of these on association ergodic irreducible aperiodic Markov chain computational Pincus 1970-currently called simulated annealing-is exemplified and assessed leading to grave concern about what current simulated annealing process may coverage to, instead of optima.
