In this paper we deal with the problem of extremal parameter grouping. The problem formulation, the algorithms of parameter grouping and the fields of implementation are presented. The deterministic algorithms of extremal parameter grouping often find the local maximum of the functional, characterizing the quality of a partition. The problem has been formulated as a problem of combinatorial optimization and attempted to be solved using the simulated annealing strategy. The algorithms, realizing such a strategy and devoted to the solving of the problem concerned, are proposed and investigated.
