APPPHYS 229: Statistical Mechanics of Learning and Computation

Recent years have witnessed the successful application of time-honored techniques from the statistical physics of disordered systems, like the replica method and the cavity method, to understanding modern advances in machine learning and computation. We will develop the foundations of these methods, starting with a crash course in statistical mechanics, and then progressing to the basic theory of spin glasses, associative memories, random matrices, and random landscapes. We will additionally learn how to apply this theory to problems in learning and computation, including high dimensional statistics and deep learning. Overall, this foundations course will prepare students to read the growing interdisciplinary literature spanning physics, learning and computation.

APPPHYS 237: Quantitative Evolutionary Dynamics and Genomics (BIO 251)

The genomics revolution has fueled a renewed push to model evolutionary processes in quantitative terms. This course will provide an introduction to quantitative evolutionary modeling through the lens of statistical physics. Topics will range from the foundations of theoretical population genetics to experimental evolution of laboratory microbes. Course work will involve a mixture of pencil-and-paper math, writing basic computer simulations, and downloading and manipulating DNA sequence data from published datasets. This course is intended for upper level physics and math students with no biology background, as well as biology students who are comfortable with differential equations and probability.

APPPHYS 363: Modern Physics and Literature (ENGLISH 363)

Reading and discussion of selected works of contemporary literature (fiction) and philosophy that engage concepts of modern physics grounded in relativity and quantum theory. This is intended as a seminar that mixes students from physical sciences and the arts/humanities, with no specific prerequisites-- we will discuss the physics invoked by works of fiction and philosophy in a conceptually rigorous but non-mathematical way. How do writers of speculative fiction make sense of challenging ontological claims from empirical science, what implications do they explore, and how is the worldview of theoretical physics augmented or contested?
