We combine Mean Field Annealing (MFA) [7] 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 [5], MFA at a constant temperature[7] and a stochastic weight penalty technique, known as GENET, proposed by Tsang & Wang (1992) [8]
