Simulated Annealing: A Monte Carlo Method for GPS Surveying
This paper describes simulated annealing technique,which is a Monte Carlo method, to analyze and improve the efficiency of the design of Global Positioning System (GPS) surveying networks. The paper proposes various local search procedures which can be coupled with the simulated annealing technique.
