                         based on the microcanonical simulation techniques of statistical 
                         physics, which has been recently proposed as a suitable 
                         alternative to the simulated annealing approaches. The µO 
                         algorithm retains all of the positive features of the 
                         microcanonical annealing introduced by Barnard (which follows the 
                         pioneering work by Creutz), but avoids the necessity of an 
                         annealing schedule, thus resulting in improved computational 
                         efficiency. Here we present applications of the µO algorithm to 
                         some prototypical visual and show that it performs better than the 
                         traditional, or canonical, simulated annealing (SA) and then 
                         Barnards microcanonical annealing (MA).",
