The central role of spin glass transitions in optimization and inference problems
I will review several results about optimization and inference problems, that are fundamental to the theoretical computer science, where the concepts and tools developed in the theory of spin glasses have played a central role. I will discuss how the computational hardness can be related to the ergodicity breaking phase transition in statistical physics. Finally I will present some recent results aiming to a better description of optimization and inference algorithms in hard problems.
