The application of fractional Brownian Motion (fBm) has drawn a lot of attention in a large number of areas, ranging from mathematical finance to engineering. The feature of long range dependency limited due to the value of Hurst parameter H ∈ (1/2, 1) makes fBm the desired process for stochastic modelling. The simulation of fBm is also vital for the application in such fields. Hence, the development of an algorithm to simulate an fBm is required in both theoretical and practical aspects of fBm. In this study, we mainly propose a new fBm generation method by using the Hurst parameter and the correlation structure based on this parameter and suggest an algorithm to generate correlated random walk converging to fBm, with Hurst parameter, H∈ (1/2, 1). The increments of this random walk are simulated from Bernoulli distribution with proportion p, whose density is constructed using the link between correlation of multivariate Gaussian random variables and correlation of their dichotomized binary variables. We prove that the normalized sum of trajectories of this proposed random walk yields a Gaussian process whose scaling limit is the fBm.

A GENERALIZED CORRELATED RANDOM WALK APPROXIMATION TO FRACTIONAL BROWNIAN MOTION
Vardar Acar, Ceren (null; 2018-04-30)
In this study, we mainly propose an algorithm to generate correlated random walk converging to fractional Brownian motion, with Hurst parameter, H∈ [1/2,1]. The increments of this random walk are simulated from Bernoulli distribution with proportion p, whose density is constructed using the link between correlation of multivariate Gaussian random variables and correlation of their dichotomized binary variables. We prove that the normalized sum of trajectories of this proposed random walk yields a Gaussian p...
A finite element variational multiscale method for the Navier-Stokes equations
Volker, John; Kaya Merdan, Songül (Society for Industrial & Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2005-01-01)
This paper presents a variational multiscale method (VMS) for the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations which is defined by a large scale space L-H for the velocity deformation tensor and a turbulent viscosity nu(T). The connection of this method to the standard formulation of a VMS is explained. The conditions on L-H under which the VMS can be implemented easily and efficiently into an existing finite element code for solving the Navier - Stokes equations are studied. Numerical tests with the Smagorinsky ...
A model for the computation of quantum billiards with arbitrary shapes
Erhan, Inci M.; Taşeli, Hasan (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
An expansion method for the stationary Schrodinger equation of a three-dimensional quantum billiard system whose boundary is defined by an arbitrary analytic function is introduced. The method is based on a coordinate transformation and an expansion in spherical harmonics. The effectiveness is verified and confirmed by a numerical example, which is a billiard system depending on a parameter.
An approximation method for design applications related to sway in RC framed buildings
TEKELİ, Hamide; Atimtay, E.; TÜRKMEN, Mustafa (2015-09-01)
In this paper, an approximate method is proposed for determining sway of multistory RC buildings subjected to various types of lateral loads. The calculation of both fundamental period and stability index in RC building requires the sway term at each story level. Using approximate method design engineers can estimate sway terms at each story level. The developed analytical expressions are inserted into fundamental period and stability index equations to replace the sway terms, which yields modified equation...
A strange recursion operator for a new integrable system of coupled Korteweg-de Vries equations
Karasu, A; Karasu, Atalay; Sakovich, SY (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-08-01)
A recursion operator is constructed for a new integrable system of coupled Korteweg de Vries equations by the method of gauge-invariant description of zero-curvature representations. This second-order recursion operator is characterized by unusual structure of its nonlocal part.
