Adapting the Energy Landscape for MFA.
Journal of Artificial Neural Networks, 2, (4), .
We combine Mean Field Annealing (MFA)  with an anti-hebbian type adaptive weight penalty method forming an algorithm that performs well on standard benchmark optimization problems. We compare the hybrid algorithm with the Petford and Welsh algorithm , MFA at a constant temperature and a stochastic weight penalty technique, known as GENET, proposed by Tsang & Wang (1992) .
