I am currently working on my Ph.D. project on statistical physics. I am

familiar with renormalization group techniques and some specialized

techniques for exactly solving models, like the Bethe Ansatz and the

Yang-Baxter equation.

I independently concluded that mathematical existence and physical existence

are the same, by contemplating thought experiments with artificial

intelligence. I think that I got this idea in 1994. I joined this list in

the summer of 2000 and posted some of my thought experiments.

I think that statistical physics, and especially renormalization group

techniques, are essential if one wishes to derive the physics that we

observe from abstract concepts like a measure defined on a set of computer

programs.

Let me conclude by giving some interesting references of books and articles

that are not too technical:

[1] Scaling and renormalization in statistical physics, J. Cardy, Cambridge

University Press

[2] Exactly Solved Models in Statistical Mechanics, R.J. Baxter, Academic

Press, New York, 1982

[3] Renormalization Group Studies of Vertex Models, Saibal Mitra,

http://arxiv.org/abs/physics/9910031

[4] Determinism and Dissipation in Quantum Gravity, Erice lecture, Gerard 't

Hooft,

http://arxiv.org/abs/hep-th/0003005

[5] Entropic Dynamics, Ariel Caticha, http://arxiv.org/abs/gr-qc/0109068
