APPLICATIONS TO OTHER FIELDS

We’ve already encountered more than a few surprises yielded up by spin glass research. But perhaps none is so great as its unanticipated impact on an impressive array of problems from other fields. Mathematical and conceptual tools developed for spin glasses have found their way into a variety of applications, including the introduction of new methods for obtaining estimates on optimal solutions of computationally “hard” problems; the development of new algorithms with broad-based applicability; the development of new methods for biologically based computation; the develpoment of new models of neural networks, protein dynamics and folding, prebiotic evolution, and maturation of the immune response; and the elucidation ...
