Spin Glass is known to converge to its ground state under Simulated Annealing. The word choice is especially interesting since annealing is also the name of a process performed on actual glass. ...
I am a graduate student in mathematics working in probability (without a very good background in physics honestly) and I've started to see arguments based on computations derived from the replica ...
I am reading the article "Statistical Mechanics of Community Detection" by Jörg Reichardt and Stefarn Bornholdt, which describes how to use the spinglass model from physics to determine communities in ...
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 ...
