I’m currently at the National Center for Theoretical Sciences, Math Division, on the campus of the National Tsing Hua University, Hsinchu for the 2013 Conference on Mathematical Physiology. The NCTS is perhaps the best run institution I’ve ever visited. They have made my stay extremely comfortable and convenient.
Here are the slides for my talk on Correlations, Fluctuations, and Finite Size Effects in Neural Networks. Here is a list of references that go with the talk
