My mathematically-oriented work generally explores discrete geometric and probabilistic themes in physics, computation, and communication. Jack of most trades, master of none.

comment Deep Learning / Deep neural nets for mathematician
This is more for physicists but nevertheless looks like it should be pretty insightful: arxiv.org/abs/1410.3831

comment When few simple conditions yield a unique intricate structure
It is worth pointing out that two of your examples (j-invariant and sporadic simple groups) are related through moonshine, as is the intricate structure of the Golay code.

comment Two equivalent descriptions of a physical system yielding a non-trivial mathematical formula
Do Lagrangian, Hamiltonian, and Hamilton-Jacobi formalisms count? What about thermodynamics and statistical physics?

comment How to pack 3D boxes into a bigger box?
Looking either figure, it's easy to imagine a long, narrow box lying diagonally on the top.

comment How can we interpret the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of Euclidean Distance Matrices?
In this case PCA is functionally equivalent to metric multidimensional scaling. The latter, however, works directly on the distance matrix.

comment Is there a method to simultaneously block-diagonalize a set of group matrices?
Some old but rather explicit physics notes of mine on doing this in the context of a simple lattice gauge theory are here: drive.google.com/file/d/0ByTBBePgIzD0a3ZGSWt3aFlJS00/…
