Horizon of Computation in Probabilistic Information Processing
Compensation of expressing uncertainty using probability and statistics It must be calculated by taking account of both events with high probability and events with low probability. Computational Complexity It is expected to break throw the computational complexity by introducing approximation algorithms. Physical Fuctuomatics (Tohoku University)

What is an important point in computational complexity?
How should we treat the calculation of the summation over 2N configuration? If it takes 1 second in the case of N=10, it takes 17 minutes in N=20, 12 days in N=30 and 34 years in N=40.

Law of Large Numbers Let us suppose that random variables X1,X2,...,Xn are identical and mutual independent random variables with average m. Then we have Central Limit Theorem We consider a sequence of independent, identical distributed random variables, {X1,X2,...,Xn}, with average m and variance s2. Then the distribution of the random variable tends to the Gauss distribution with average m and variance s2/n as n+. Physics Fluctuomatics/Applied Stochastic Process　(Tohoku University)
