Figuring Out the Puzzle (in a 2-D CVM Grid)

Figuring Out the Puzzle (in a 2-D CVM Grid)

The Conundrum – and How to Solve It: We left off last week with a bit of a cliff-hanger; a puzzle with the 2-D CVM. (CVM stands for Cluster Variation Method; it’s a more complex form of a free energy equation that I discussed two weeks ago in this blogpost on The Big, Bad, Scary Free Energy Equation (and New Experimental Results); while not entirely unknown, it’s still not very common yet.) We asked ourselves: which of the two grids…

2-D Cluster Variation Method: Code V&V

New Code (Not Released Yet): V&V the Code Before We Play:   Well, my darling, as you gathered from last week’s post, the world has shifted. Up until now, when we were talking about having a new free energy function to use inside a neural network, we had to do “Gedankenexperiments” (German for “thought experiments”). Now, though, there’s working code – and I so LOVE seeing the numbers and graphs come out; teasing it, playing with it … stroking it…
