Annealing is the method to optimize atoms on the best place. In high temperature, atoms move in various direction, as the temperature goes low slowly, atoms go the most stable place. The stable place is crystal structure. This is annealing.
If temperature goes low quickly, randomly moving atoms stop the point. This solid structure is called Non-crystal, amorphous and glass.
Simulated annealing is the method imitated the real annealing. We make "temperature" factor in function and find the best value by operating it.
Simulated annealing is used as a simulation method for real annealing in Molecular Dynamics .
It is alos used as a method to solve general optimization problems .
