Algorithm 2

Pseudocode SA applied to protein folding problem.
(1) Tune initial temperature () by analytical method
(2) Tune final temperature () by analytical method
(3) Setting cooling factor ()
(4)  is created by modifying the internal angles of protein
(6) Calculate energy of protein applying a Force Field
(8) While () do //Temperature Cycle
(9)  While (stop condition) //Metropolis Cycle
(10)   Create new solution () by modifying internal angles of the protein
(11)     Calculate Energy of proteins using a force field funtion
(12)     Obtain difference of energies between these two proteins
(13)   If (difference ≤ 0) then
