Spin coherent states are the matter equivalent of optical coherent states, where a large n

Just as there are frictional losses in moving a weight on a surface, there are also frictional losses in moving information on a substrate.

We study the performance of static solutions for two-stage adjustable robust linear optimization problems with uncertain constraint and objective coefficients and give a tight characterization of the adaptivity gap.

Suppose you want to find the least congested route in an ad hoc network. Each link's rate is unknown and stochastic, and each time you get to see the minimum rate (i.e., bottleneck) along any route you pick.

A bent function is a Boolean function all of whose Fourier coefficients are equal in absolute value.

We analyze large random matching markets with unequal numbers of men and women. We find that being on the short side of the market confers a large advantage.

The permanent of a doubly stochastic matrix is at least that of the matrix with each entry $1/n$ (the matrices are $n x n$).

Networks of chemical reactions have natural underlying combinatorial structure, allowing them to be represented as graphs or digraphs, perhaps with additional vertex or edge colourings/labellings.
