    In this paper we present a formal model of the Boltzmann machine and a discussion of two different applications of the model, viz. (i) solving combinatorial optimization problems and (ii) carrying out learning tasks. Numerical results of computer simulations are presented to demonstrate the characteristic features of the Boltzmann machine.
