Does anyone know where i can find a good tutorial as to how about
implmementing a Simulated Annealing algorithm with information about,
say, ways in which to determine the initial temperate etc…

I’m not sure to what application of simulated annealing you are
reffering to, but the algorithm is largerly about choice and the initial
tempeature is one (it might be some ‘good’ choices of initial
temperature though). Like, If you did some boids based learning for your
AI, at the first temperatures you would move particles in random
directions, and when the temperature is cold you follow the heuristics
(like movement = temp*random + (1-temp)*heuristics etc.). A good
choice of initial temperatur might be 1. Not sure if this helps ;)
Edit: I think the correct name of the boids thingie, might be Particle
Swarm Optimization. Maybe not really a learning thingie, but it has
something to do with AI ;).
Edit II: I don’t mean that the initial temperatur =1, it is a choice..
Argh, every time I read that message I find something wierd. Anyways, to
avoid editing the message again: What I mean is that the general
simulated annealing algorithm (which is the one I’m familiar with),
there are several choices of variables (like initial temperature and how
fast the temperature should drop etc.). AFAIK, most lets the user choose
these variables (i.e. in the gui).
