Hello, this is my first question on PhysicsForum. I am primarily interested in statistics/machine learning. I have recently discovered that many of the ideas used in machine learning came from statistical physics/ statistical mechanics.
I am just wondering if it's a bad idea to attempt to learn the computational/mathematical aspects of statistical mechanics with zero physics background? Maybe it's easier to learn some physics before attempting this?
