Depends the type of system, its size, the purpose of the simulated
But yes the slowest the better. At the origin the simulated annealing was
coupled to Monte Carlo simulation and in THEORY if you decrease the
temperature by steps infinitey small you get to the global minimum. Check
in a book or some papers using simulated annealing.
