Title : Two-body correlation functions
Abstract:
Many properties of interest in science, mathematics and computer science can be expressed in terms of sums over states. Probability is a typical example. As the number of items in a model, N, gets large, the number of states gets large exponentially faster, with exponents like 10^20. Then aggregation almost commutes with the dynamical equations, exactly commuting in the infinite limit, and it is possible to write dynamical equations for aggregate values. The ideal gas law, PV=NkT, is a typical result.

When the items interact, multi-body correlation functions appear in the dynamical equations. Two-body correlation functions are often easily measurable: from them symmetries of the system can be calculated. Ocular dominance stripes on the primary visual cortex fit this pattern.
