Artificial-neural-network prediction of hexagonal lattice parameters for non-stoichiometric apatites

In this study, hexagonal lattice parameters (a and c) and unit-cell volumes of non-stoichiometric apatites of M-10(TO4)(6)X-2 are predicted from their ionic radii with artificial neural networks. A multilayer-perceptron network is used for training. The results indicate that the Bayesian regularization method with four neurons in the hidden layer with a tansig activation function and one neuron in the output layer with a purelin function gives the best results. It is found that the errors for the predicted data of the lattice parameters of a and c are less than 1 % and 2 %, respectively. On the other hand, about 3 % errors were encountered for both lattice parameters of the non-stoichiometric apatites with exact formulas in the presence of the T-site ions that are not used for training the artificial neural network.

In this study, the hexagonal lattice parameters of apatite compounds, M-10(TO4)(6)X-2, where M is Na+, Ca2+, Ba2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Sr2+, Mn2+, Zn2+, Eu2+, Nd3+, La3+ or Y3+, T is As+5, Cr+5, P5+, V5+ or Si+4, and X is F-, Cl-, OH- or Br-, were predicted from their ionic radii by artificial neural networks. A multilayer perceptron network was used for training and the best results were obtained with a Bayesian regularization method. Four neurons were used in the hidden layer, utilizing a tangent sigmoid activati...
Theoretical investigation of quercetin and its radical isomers
Erkoc, E; Erkoc, F; Keskin, N (Elsevier BV, 2003-08-01)
The structural and electronic properties of quercetin and its five radical isomers have been investigated theoretically by performing semi-empirical molecular orbital theory calculations. The geometry of the systems have been optimized and the electronic properties of the systems considered have been calculated by semi-empirical self-consistend-field molecular orbital theory at the level AM1 within UHF formalism in their ground state. Conclusions have been drawn by comparing with experimental results.

This paper presents an artificial neural network approach to compute thermally stimulated current (TSC) in as-grown T1GaSeS layered single crystals. The experimental data have been obtained from TSC measurements. The network has been trained by a genetic algorithm (GA). The results confirmed that the proposed model could provide an accurate computation of the TSC.
Neural networks with piecewise constant argument and impact activation
Yılmaz, Enes; Akhmet, Marat; Department of Scientific Computing (2011)
This dissertation addresses the new models in mathematical neuroscience: artificial neural networks, which have many similarities with the structure of human brain and the functions of cells by electronic circuits. The networks have been investigated due to their extensive applications in classification of patterns, associative memories, image processing, artificial intelligence, signal processing and optimization problems. These applications depend crucially on the dynamical behaviors of the networks. In t...
Comparison of two inference approaches in Gaussian graphical models
Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda; Wit, Ernst (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2017-04-01)
Introduction: The Gaussian Graphical Model (GGM) is one of the well-known probabilistic models which is based on the conditional independency of nodes in the biological system. Here, we compare the estimates of the GGM parameters by the graphical lasso (glasso) method and the threshold gradient descent (TGD) algorithm.
