I am trying to come up with the algorithm for my n queens using Simulated Annealing. There is the general algorithm online, but when i look at it, I couldn't understand how it work. My nodes have the number of hits between the queens on chess board. How can I apply for the algorithm. What is the "temperature", "schedule"?

This is the general algorithm on page 9

Please help me understand this. Thanks
