A study on the discretization of fractional Brownian motion

Coşkun, Buket

In this study, we first discretize the fractional Brownian motion in time and observe multivariate Gaussian random variables (mGrv) to have a fractional Gaussian noise (fGn). Afterwards, we have discretized this discrete time process in space using a discretization proportion p and observe a random walk. We carry out this simulation study to foresee whether the correlated random walk using certain discretization parameters p behave similar to fBm. Based on this simulation study, we conclude on two important conjectures. First, there should exist a correlated random walk with parameter p converging to fBm since there exist correlated random walks behaving very similar to its originating fBm. Second, the convergence is satisfied for only certain values of p.


A simplified MAP channel estimator for OFDM systems under Rayleigh fading
ÇÜRÜK, SELVA; Tanık, Yalçın (2010-06-01)
This paper presents a simplified Maximum A Posteriori (SMAP) channel estimator to be used in orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems under the Rayleigh fading assumption for the subchannels, using a parametric correlation model and assuming that the channel is frequency selective and slowly time varying. Expressions for the mean-square error (MSE) of estimations are derived to evaluate the performance of the estimator. The relation between the correlation of subchannels taps and error vari...
Principal-component analysis of two-particle azimuthal correlations in PbPb and pPb collisions at CMS
Sirunyan, A. M.; et. al. (2017-12-01)
For the first time a principle-component analysis is used to separate out different orthogonal modes of the two-particle correlation matrix from heavy ion collisions. The analysis uses data from root s(NN) = 2.76 TeV PbPb and root s(NN) = 5.02 TeV pPb collisions collected by the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Two-particle azimuthal correlations have been extensively used to study hydrodynamic flow in heavy ion collisions. Recently it was shown that the expected factorization of two-partic...
A Novel Computational Method to Calculate Nonlinear Normal Modes of Complex Structures
Samandarı, Hamed; Ciğeroğlu, Ender (2019-01-31)
In this study, a simple and efficient computational approach to obtain nonlinear normal modes (NNMs) of nonlinear structures is presented. Describing function method (DFM) is used to capture the nonlinear internal forces under periodic motion. DFM has the advantage of expressing the nonlinear internal force as a nonlinear stiffness matrix multiplied by a displacement vector, where the off-diagonal terms of the nonlinear stiffness matrix can provide a comprehensive knowledge about the coupling between the mo...
An analysis of a linearly extrapolated BDF2 subgrid artificial viscosity method for incompressible flows
Demir, Medine (Elsevier BV, 2020-10-01)
This report extends the mathematical support of a subgrid artificial viscosity (SAV) method to simulate the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations to better performing a linearly extrapolated BDF2 (BDF2LE) time discretization. The method considers the viscous term as a combination of the vorticity and the grad-div stabilization term. SAV method introduces global stabilization by adding a term, then anti-diffuses through the extra mixed variables. We present a detailed analysis of conservation laws, includin...
A Novel Numerical Method for Evaluation of Hypersingular Integrals in Electromagnetics
Selcuk, Gokhun; Demir, Oguz; Koç, Seyit Sencer (2015-11-28)
In this study we develop a numerical method for evaluation of hypersingular surface integrals, which arise in the solution of electric field integral equation (EFIE) via Nystrom method. Due to the divergent contribution of an infinitesimal area around the singular point, hypersingular integrals are told to be numerically intractable and analytical methods are employed for evaluation of these integrals. In this study we interpret hypersingular integrals as the second order derivative of weakly singular integ...
