Parallel Simulated Annealing Library (parSA-Library) provides a comfortable and efficient parallel framework in order to have a simulated annealing optimization system, which can be applied to many different optimization problems. The use of the MPI message passing standard ensures a wide portability to different parallel platforms without redesigning the code.

The parallelization of the simulated annealing algorithm is transparent to the user of the library. The library adapts itself to platforms and problems. This behavior ensures high efficiency on different parallel platforms. Applications on real-world problem instances and on real current parallel architectures like workstation clusters and dedicated parallel computers have proved the implemented parallel software library to be highly efficient.
