Beschreibung

This Santa Fe Institute volume is intended to be a standard reference to statistical physics methods in computer science theory, particularly in relation to the study of phase transitions in combinatorial problems. It will contain both basic pedagogical material and technical tips and discussions to review the field from a broad perspective. The study of phase transitions in combinatorial problems originated about 50 years ago in work on random graphs by Eros and Renyi. During the past 10 years, there has been increasing appreciation of the relevance of phase transitions to algorithmic performance on computationally hard problems. Mathematicians, computer scientists and physicists have been working to develop the theoretical tools to understand the processes fundamental to computation. This book should appeal strongly to the interdisciplinary group of information scientists.

Portrait

Cristopher Moore is an Associate Professor at the University of New Mexico, and holds a joint appointment in the Computer Science and Physics departments. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell University in 1991. He has published 80 papers at the interface between these two fields, on topics ranging from statistical physics and phase transitions to quantum algorithms and mapping the internet.
