Parent Command
>>> ANNEAL
Subcommand

Description
This command defines the initial temperature tau0 for Simulated Annealing minimization.
The initial temperature is reduced after each iteration k according to the annealing schedule (see command
The probability decreases with decreasing temperature. The initial temperature temp0 should be a reasonable fraction of the objective function S. If a positive value is given, then tau0 = temp0. If a negative value is provided, the initial temperature is internally calculated as a fraction of the initial objective function:
