Paper Abstract

A new stochastic optimization algorithm is introduced in which a pipeline of many biased stochastic procedures cooperate to concurrently sample the usual Boltzmann distribution for different temperatures. Convergence and efficiency of the pipeline algorithm is proved under certain conditions. Experimental confirmation is provided using seven standard test problems in nonlinear optimization.
