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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
