Machine Learning for Theoretical Physics

Time:2023-03-03 ~ 2023-05-08 Mon | Fri 09:50 - 12:15

Venue: Room 1129B | 1118 ZOOM: 482 240 1589 | 242 742 6089 PW: BIMSA

Speaker:Shailene Lal


Elementary multivariate calculus, elementary statistics. Some basic General Relativity and Statistical Mechanics may help in following the applications.


The course is targeted to those who know beginning graduate level physics but do not know machine learning. We will cover important methods in machine learning with a view to their applications to current physics such as string theory, particle physics, critical phenomena, gravitational waves and integrability. We will also cover some applications to Lie algebras. We will use Python3, scikit-learn and Keras/Tensorflow. These will be introduced in the lectures.

Lecturer Intro.

Dr Shailesh Lal received his PhD from the Harish-Chandra Research Institute. His research interests are applications of machine learning to string theory and mathematical physics, black holes in string theory and higher-spin holography.

      Probabilistic machine learning

      IntroductionProbabilistic approach in machine and deep learning leads to principled solutions. It provides explainable decisions and new ways for improving of existing approaches. Bayesian machine learning consists of probabilistic approaches that rely on Bayes formula. It can help in numerous applications and has beautiful mathematical concepts behind. In this course, I will describe the found...

      Gaussian processes in machine learning

      PrerequisiteProbability theory, Mathematical statistics, Machine learningAbstractMachine learning considers many models. Some are interpretable, others are probabilistic, and others are used in practice. Gaussian process-based models have all these properties: they are interpretable, probabilistic, and lead to practical solutions. The history of applications of Gaussian process regression in ma...
