  Deep learning and physics
Tanaka A., Tomiya A., Hashimoto K., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2021. 220 pp.  Type: Book (978-9-813361-07-2)

Machine learning (ML) and particularly deep learning (DL) are used in various physics studies. In this book, the authors show how. They begin by discussing the attributes and theory of ML and its apparent similarities in form to theories in physic...

  Mechanistic explanations in physics and beyond
Falkenburg B., Schiemann G., Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2019. 220 pp.  Type: Book (978-3-030107-06-2)

This book provides an overview of the mechanistic approach to science from historical, philosophical, computational, and other viewpoints. This approach arises from the fact that, in real life, most objects remain the same (at least lo...

  Quantum computing: survey and analysis
Savchuk M., Fesenko A. Cybernetics and Systems Analysis 55(1): 10-21, 2019.  Type: Article

With quantum supremacy allegedly having been achieved by Google, the need for short, correct, and accessible introductions into the quantum computing (QC) realm certainly is going to rise. Regrettably, this paper is an egregious failur...
