Graph and Network Theory in Physics: A Short Introduction
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 53

Description:
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...

by - arXiv
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.

by - Publish or Perish Inc.
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.
