About the Author

Florent Krzakala is a Professor in physics at Universite Pierre et Marie in Paris, France, and is doing his research in Ecole Normale Superieure on statistical physics and disordered systems. Currently, he is leading a research team working on the development of interdisciplinary methods between statistical physics and computer science. Federico Ricci-Tersenghi is Associate Professor at the University of Rome La Sapienza, Italy. He his the co-author of "Scientific Programming: C-Language, Algorithms and Models in Science". He has an interest in the statistical physics of disordered systems, such as spin glasses, glasses, networks, optimization problems, inference and learning. Eric W. Tramel is a postdoctoral research fellow at Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, France, researching the interface between statistical physics and signal processing from the perspective of electrical computer engineering. Riccardo Zecchina is a professor at the Politecnico di Torino, Italy. His research interest lies at the interface between statistical physics, computer science, information theory and computational biology. Curently, he us engaged in applying the statistical physics techniques to inverse problems that arise in computational biology and neuroscience. Lenka Zdeborova is a researcher in the Institute for Theoretical Physics (IPhT) of the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Saclay, France. Her main research interest are applications of methods from statistical mechanics and theoretical physics to problems in computer science, information theory, signal processing and machine learning. She was recently awarded the CNRS bronze medal for her work on statistical physics and computer science.; Leticia F. Cugliandolo is Professor at the Laboratoire de Physique Theorique et Hautes Energies Universite Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris, France. She is the director of the Les Houches School of Physics.
