Event details

I will give an update on the conference "40 years of Replica Symmetry 
Breaking: A conference about systems with many states". I will not 
discuss any of the technical details of replicas, but will focus on 
the interesting results obtained in areas like

  1. Deep neural networks
  2. Statistical mechanics of protein evolution
  3. The glass transition

I will mention if the time the ongoing question of whether replica 
symmetry breaking occurs in 3 dimensions.

Slides and videos from the conference are available at
