Simulated annealing and lens design
Based on theoretical work done by Metropolis in the 1950s, Bohachevsky, Viswanathan, and others at the Los Alamos National Laboratories pioneered the application of simulated annealing to lens design. More recently, efforts by Yang and Hopkins, Hearn, and Weller have advanced this technology toward commercial use by designers.
