For the two lectures on "Physics of Reasoning" --
- E.T. Jaynes, Information Theory and Statistical Mechanics I.
- Gasper, Schneidman, Berry & Bialek, Ising models for networks of real neurons
- Yu. V. Gurikov, Configurational Entropy of Water
more advanced --
- R.A. Fisher, J. Wishart, The Derivation of the Pattern Formulae of two-way Partitions from those of Simpler Patterns
- Spin Glasses and Biology (ed. Daniel Stein) (available at SFI library)
- Reiss, Hammerich & Montroll, Thermodynamic treatment of nonphysical systems -- the off-site fulltext is available.
- Park & Newman, Statistical Mechanics of Networks
- A.R. Liddle, How many cosmological parameters?
If you only have time to read one, read Jaynes! If you are unable to access any of these articles, feel free to e-mail me at simon@santafe.edu

Steve Guerin and I will present modeling with NetLogo. It will have two parts, one a self-paced wiki tutorial, the second a set of real world examples of modeling we've used professionally.
Read the first page of the tutorial. Then (attempt!) to download, install, and look at the Model Library.
