EPJ ST Special Issue: Machine Learning for quantum many-body systems

Editors: Roberta Citro and Morten Hjorth-Jensen

This special topic will cover different aspects of machine learning for the description of quantum many-body physics systems from both solid state, statistical mechanics and computer science. Machine learning will be discussed as a complementary method to current computational techniques for many-body systems, including Monte Carlo and tensor networks, as well as methods to analyze "big data" generated in experiments.

Foundational questions in machine learning for many-body systems will be addressed, as well as the theoretical connections between deep learning, renormalization group theory and neural-networks. We expect to build up a volume in which readers can find new directions in turning the early machine learning methods in performing multifaceted tasks, e.g. to design new experiments. Moreover, the reader will be exposed to a new multidisciplinary field and will enrich his/her vision of computational techniques.

The proposed issue will cover areas including:

  • Fast machine learning for scientific discoveries
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Novel quantum Monte Carlo Methods
  • Applications of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to sub-atomic physics
  • Applications of Bayesian optimization and Bayesian statistics and Bayesian Machine Learning to many-body problems

The Guest Editors invite authors to submit their original research and short reviews on the theme of the Special Issue of the European Physical Journal - Special Topics. Articles may be one of four types: (i) minireviews (10-15 pages), (ii) tutorial reviews (15+ pages), (iii) original paper v1 (5-10 pages), or (iv) original paper v2 (3-5 pages). More detailed descriptions of each paper type can be found in the Submission Guidelines. Manuscripts should be prepared using the latex template (preferably 2-column layout), which can be downloaded here.

Submission deadline: 31st October 2022

Articles should be submitted to the Editorial Office of EPJ ST via the submission system, and should be clearly identified as intended for the topical issue “Machine Learning for quantum many-body systems”.

Dear Sabine and Isabelle,
Thank you so much for all your help and excellent work you did on the EPJ ST volume "Nonlinear Dynamics of Deterministic and Stochastic Systems: Unraveling Complexity". This was a great experience and collaboration.
