This is an introductory course in the theory of statistics, inference, and machine learning, with an emphasis on theoretical understanding & practical exercises. The course will combine, and alternate, between mathematical theoretical foundations and practical computational aspects in python.
The aim of this course is to introduce the concepts, methods and consequences of quantum physics. In particular, the angular momentum, perturbation theory, many-particle systems, quantum correlations (entanglement), open quantum systems, symmetries and invariance laws, will be addressed
This course covers the statistical physics approach to computer science problems ranging from graph theory and constraint satisfaction to inference and machine learning. In particular the replica and cavity methods, message passings algorithms, and analysis of the related phase transitions.
