Berman, D. S., He, Y-H. ORCID: 0000-0002-0787-8380 & Hirst, E. ORCID: 0000-0003-1699-4399 (2022). Machine learning Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces. Physical Review D, 105(6), article number 066002. doi: 10.1103/physrevd.105.066002


We revisit the classic database of weighted-P4s which admit Calabi-Yau 3-fold hypersurfaces equipped with a diverse set of tools from the machine-learning toolbox. Unsupervised techniques identify an unanticipated almost linear dependence of the topological data on the weights. This then allows us to identify a previously unnoticed clustering in the Calabi-Yau data. Supervised techniques are successful in predicting the topological parameters of the hypersurface from its weights with an accuracy of R2>95%. Supervised learning also allows us to identify weighted-P4s which admit Calabi-Yau hypersurfaces to 100% accuracy by making use of partitioning supported by the clustering behavior.
