Bayesian Inference of Infected Patients in Group Testing with Prevalence Estimation
J. Phys. Soc. Jpn. 89, 084001 (2020).
Group testing is a method of identifying infected patients by performing tests on a pool of specimens. Bayesian inference and a corresponding belief propagation (BP) algorithm are introduced to identify the infected patients in group testing.

We numerically diagonalize the DimerTrimer (DT) model Hamiltonian around the SU(3) symmetric point. As a result, we discover the phase transition at this point which belongs to the BerezinskiiKosterlitzThouless (BKT)like universality class.
