It is shown by the derivation of solution methods for an elementary optimization problem that the stochastic relaxation in image analysis, the Potts neural networks for combinatorial optimization and interior point methods for nonlinear programming have common formulation of their dynamics. This unification of these algorithms leads us to possibility for real time solution of these problems with common analog electronic circuits.
