  journal={Physical Review B},
We present a machine learning approach to solve electronic quantum transport equations of one-dimensional nanostructures. The transmission coefficients of disordered systems were computed to provide training and test data sets to the machine. The system's representation encodes energetic as well as geometrical information to characterize similarities between disordered configurations, while the Euclidean norm is used as a measure of similarity. Errors for out-of-sample predictions…

Nonequilibrium fluctuations of a driven quantum heat engine via machine learning.
It is observed that the standard thermodynamic uncertainty relation is not valid when there are finite geometric contributions to the fluctuations but holds true for zero phase difference even in the presence of coherences.
Neural networks for modeling electron transport properties of mesoscopic systems
This work trains neural networks to predict transport properties of a quasi-one-dimensional tight-binding model with disordered on-site energies and finds that even for a relatively large system size, the trained neural network in model II performs much better in predicting the conductance at the Fermi energy.

Machine learning on the electron–boson mechanism in superconductors
It is proposed that the machine learning might infer pairing mechanism from observables like superconducting gap functions to extract relevant information from data and can be applied to general function-to-function mappings with asymmetric complexities either in physics or other fields.

A machine learning model is presented that allows the inexpensive prediction of the electrical conductance of millions of long double-stranded DNA (dsDNA) sequences, reducing computational costs by orders of magnitude and supports physical observations that clusters of nucleotides regulate DNA transport behavior.
Electronic spectra from TDDFT and machine learning in chemical space.
This work applies machine learning models trained on deviations of reference second-order approximate coupled-cluster singles and doubles spectra from TDDFT counterparts, or even from DFT gap to low-lying singlet-singlet vertical electronic spectra of over 20 000 synthetically feasible small organic molecules with up to eight CONF atoms.
