How simple are simple spin models?

The talk is about spin Hamiltonians with interactions of arbitrary order. An information theoretic classification of these models into complexity classes will be discussed. The results show that the information theoretic notion of a “simple model” conforms to the one assumed in physics. Applications to high dimensional inference will also be discussed.
