Article
Full-text available
Interactions between natives and foreign-born individuals may help to stimulate the development and the diversification of bilateral trade relationships. In fact, migrants act as trade facilitators reducing transaction costs in export activities and, consequently, more local firms are able to establish new trade relationships abroad. The pro-trade...
Article
Full-text available
In this work we apply techniques and modus operandi typical of Statistical Mechanics to a large dataset about key social quantifiers and compare the resulting behaviors of five European nations, namely France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. The social quantifiers considered are i. the evolution of the number of autochthonous marriages (i.e....
Article
Full-text available
Hierarchical networks are attracting a renewal interest for modelling the organization of a number of biological systems and for tackling the complexity of statistical mechanical models beyond mean-field limitations. Here we consider the Dyson hierarchical construction for ferromagnets, neural networks and spin-glasses, recently analyzed from a sta...
Article
Full-text available
We consider extensive data on Spanish international trades and population composition and, through statistical-mechanics and graph-theory driven analysis, we unveil that the social network made of native and foreign-born individuals plays a role in the evolution and in the diversification of trades. Indeed, migrants naturally provide key informatio...
Article
Full-text available
Since its unification, more than a century ago, Italy has experienced strong social and economical diversities between its southern and northern regions. In the last decades, Italy has undergone a severe economical and political crisis reflecting corruption at various levels of social stratification as well as a poor involvement of its population i...
Article
Full-text available
We consider statistical-mechanics models for spin systems built on hierarchical structures, which provide a simple example of non-mean-field framework. We show that the coupling decay with spin distance can give rise to peculiar features and phase diagrams much richer than their mean-field counterpart. In particular, we consider the Dyson model, mi...
Article
In this work we study a Hebbian neural network, where neurons are arranged according to a hierarchical architecture such that their couplings scale with their reciprocal distance. As a full statistical mechanics solution is not yet available, after a streamlined introduction to the state of the art via that route, the problem is consistently approa...
Article
Full-text available
Neural networks are nowadays both powerful operational tools (e.g., for pattern recognition, data mining, error correction codes) and complex theoretical models on the focus of scientific investigation. As for the research branch, neural networks are handled and studied by psychologists, neurobiologists, engineers, mathematicians and theoretical ph...
Article
Full-text available
In this paper we introduce and investigate the statistical mechanics of hierarchical neural networks: First, we approach these systems \`a la Mattis, by thinking at the Dyson model as a single-pattern hierarchical neural network and we discuss the stability of different retrievable states as predicted by the related self-consistencies obtained from...
Article
Full-text available
Inspired by a continuously increasing interest in modeling and framing complex systems in a thermody- namic rationale, in this paper we continue our investigation in adapting well known techniques (originally stemmed in fields of physics and mathematics far from the present) for solving for the free energy of mean field spin models in a statistical...
Article
We consider the multitasking associative network in the low-storage limit and we study its phase diagram with respect to the noise level T and the degree d of dilution in pattern entries. We find that the system is characterized by a rich variety of stable states, including pure states, parallel retrieval states, hierarchically organized states and...
Article
Full-text available
Ferromagnetic models are harmonic oscillators in statistical mechanics. Beyond their original scope in tackling phase transition and symmetry breaking in theoretical physics, they are nowadays experiencing a renewal applicative interest as they capture the main features of disparate complex phenomena, whose quantitative investigation in the past we...
Article
Full-text available
In this work, we adopt a statistical-mechanics approach to investigate basic, systemic features exhibited by adaptive immune systems. The lymphocyte network made by B cells and T cells is modeled by a bipartite spin glass, where, following biological prescriptions, links connecting B cells and T cells are sparse. Interestingly, the dilution perform...
Article
Full-text available
We introduce a bipartite, diluted and frustrated, network as a sparse restricted Boltzmann machine and we show its thermodynamical equivalence to an associative working memory able to retrieve several patterns in parallel without falling into spurious states typical of classical neural networks. We focus on systems processing in parallel a finite (...
Article
In this work, we first revise some extensions of the standard Hopfield model in the low storage limit, namely the correlated attractor case and the multitasking case recently introduced by the authors. The former case is based on a modification of the Hebbian prescription, which induces a coupling between consecutive patterns and this effect is tun...
