Has anyone adapted the Adaptive Simulated Annealing code from Lester
Ingber into a Mathematica package?  I am trying to do parameter fitting of
a rather complicated model (28 parameters) and would like to try the ASA
method.  I presently am working with the nonlinear fitting package from
Mathematica.  Has anyone produced packages for parameter fitting using
simulated annealing (SA) methods of any kind?  I found some references to
SA in the MathSource files, but the applications were not for parameter
fitting.  Thanks for any help.
