This book presents state of the art contributes to Simulated Annealing (SA) that is a well-known probabilistic meta-heuristic. It is used to solve discrete and continuous optimization problems. The significant advantage of SA over other solution methods has made it a practical solution method for solving complex optimization problems. Book is consisted of 13 chapters, classified in single and multiple objectives applications and it provides the reader with the knowledge of SA and several applications. We encourage readers to explore SA in their work, mainly because it is simple and can determine extremely very good results.
