Please Note: This workshop is not open to the general public, but only to active researchers.

This workshop will focus on quantum aspects of black holes, focusing on applying ideas from quantum information theory.

This meeting is sponsored by the "It from Qubit"collaboration and is followed by the collaboration meeting in New York City.

Constraint Satisfaction Problems and Probabilistic Combinatorics II

The tasks of finding and randomly sampling solutions of constraint satisfaction problems over discrete variable sets arise naturally in a wide variety of areas, among them artificial intelligence, bioinformatics and combinatorics, and further have deep connections to statistical physics.

In this second talk of the series, I'll cover some results regarding random constraint satisfaction problems and their connection to statistical physics.
