Graph and Network Theory in Physics: A Short Introduction
by Ernesto Estrada
Publisher: arXiv 2013
Number of pages: 53
A book Chapter consisting of some of the main areas of research in graph theory applied to physics. It includes graphs in condensed matter theory, such as the tight-binding and the Hubbard model. It follows the study of graph theory and statistical physics by means of the analysis of the Potts model...

A set of class notes taken by math graduate students, the goal of the course was to introduce some basic concepts from theoretical physics which play so fundamental role in a recent intermarriage between physics and pure mathematics.

The book studies the role played by special function theory in the formalism of mathematical physics. It demonstrates that special functions which arise in mathematical models are dictated by symmetry groups admitted by the models.

There is extensive network of analogies between physics, topology, logic and computation. In this paper we make these analogies precise using the concept of 'closed symmetric monoidal category'. We assume no prior knowledge of category theory.

This book treats the Atiyah-Singer index theorem using the heat equation, which gives a local formula for the index of any elliptic complex. Heat equation methods are also used to discuss Lefschetz fixed point formulas and the Gauss-Bonnet theorem.
