What is an energy landscape?


This note simply tries to get across as accurately and conceptually as possible what a potential energy landscape is. It is part of an inquiry into complex networks and physical structure. The field has quite a bit of activity, and the discussion can be seen as a simple introduction to the topic. It is difficult to find introductions at this level, so it may be of use to others, but mostly I just wrote it to log some progress. Thanks to a friend for his thoughts and I welcome other thoughts and better-yet corrections (though I don’t expect any comments at such an early stage of me web logging).
