Interaction-Based Computing in Physics
The correlation between two variables is the difference between the joint probability that the two variables take some values and the product of the two probabilities (which is the joint probability of two uncorrelated variables), summed over all possible values. In an extended system, it is expected that the correlation among parts diminishes with their distance, typically in an exponential manner.
- Critical phenomenon
A condition for which an extended system is correlated over extremely long distances.
- Extended system
A system composed by many parts connected by a network of interactions that may be regular (lattice) or irregular (graph).
- Graph, lattice, tree
A graph is set of nodes connected by links, oriented or not. If the graph is translationally invariant (it looks the same when changing nodes), it is called a (regular) lattice. A disordered lattice is a lattice with a fraction of removed links or nodes. An ordered set of nodes connected by links is called a...
