Last year, there was an "Ecole de Physique" in Cargese on Statistical physics, Optimization, Inference and Message-Passing algorithms. Florent Krzakala, one of the organizers, mentioned earlier today that they had released the lecture notes of the talks. They are all on this page.
Autumn School, September 30 -- October 11, 2013
Proceeding of all lectures
Called "Statistical Physics, Optimization, Inference, and Message-Passing Algorithms" and edited by F. Krzakala, F. Ricci-Tersenghi, L. Zdeborova, R. Zecchina, E. W. Tramel, L. F. Cugliandolo. A book containing the proceeding of all lectures is in preparation at Oxford University Press. A preliminary version of some chapters can be found online on Arxiv:
