Generalizing the results of the first author and Rainer Schrader [Inf. Process. Lett. 27, 189-194 (1988)] a short inductive proof is given that shows that the stationary distributions of a simulated annealing algorithm converge to a distribution where nonoptimal elements are generated with probability zero, provided that the ''weak reversibility condition'' of B. Hajek [Math. Oper. Res. 13, No. 2, 311-329 (1988)] holds.
