Do Monte-Carlo updates have a physical significance in stat. mech?

One of the archetypical example to introduce Monte-Carlo methods in stat. mech. is to work out the properties of the 2D square lattice Ising model and compare the obtained results with Onsager's exact ...

Ising formulation of the graph isomorphism problem

Context I have been going through Ising formulations of many NP problems by Andrew Lucas. In section 9 on page 22, the author gave an Ising formulation of the graph isomorphism problem. Here I ...

spin (+1,-1) to binary notation (0,1) for patterns in Hopfield neural network

I have a probability distribution such as: $$P(s) = \frac{(1+a)\delta(s-1)}{2} + \frac{(1-a)\delta(s+1)}{2}$$ $s$ can take two values $+1$ and $-1$ Now if I introduce the variable change $v = ...

Generalization of a spin-glass order parameter definition

I am going through the paper, Solving the graph-isomorphism problem with a quantum annealer, by Hen et. al. Equation 4 on the second page gives the definition of the spin-glass order parameter as ...

Does the spin glass corresponding to a restricted Boltzmann machine have a characteristic timescale?

From what I gather, a Boltzmann machine can be identified with a spin glass. Though I don't know the details yet (and would welcome any references within the last 5 years--not, e.g. MacKay, etc.), I ...
