## ISING MODEL AND NEURAL NETWORKS

### Volodymyr Tkachuk

The talk is the short review of the relation of Ising model with
neutral networks. The first model which describes the behavior of
neural networks was introduced by J.J. Hopfield. This model was
proposed for explanation of the mechanism of associative memory.
Formally the Hopfield model is identical to the Ising model of spin
glass. Therefore, the methods of statistical mechanics can be used
for studies of the properties of the Hopfield model.
