A parallel simulated annealing algorithm for an effective implementation on multiprocessors is proposed. The new parallel annealing algorithm assigns Markov chains to each available processor and lets them generate stepwise-overlapped Markov chains simultaneously. Its major advantage is a simple communication pattern and thus less communication overhead.
