## physics and machine learning

"machine learning and likelihood free inference in particle physics"
https://figshare.com/articles/NIPS_2016_Keynote_Machine_Learning_Likelihood_Free_Inference_in_Particle_Physics/4291565
presentation on how to find patterns in very complex data
================================

## discrete math

"wolfram on Solomon Golumb, shift registers, polymonimals on finite fields"
http://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2016/05/solomon-golomb-19322016/
The Most-Used Mathematical Algorithm Idea in History
"Finite (Galois) Fields"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finite_field
As usual, wikipedia has a nice first-sentence
description. Applications in crytography, coding theory, ... Your
course will cover crypto it seems, cool!
