A one-pass predictor-corrector algorithm for the inverse Langevin function

Dal, Hüsnü
© The Author(s) 2022.Inverse Langevin function has an extensive use in statistical mechanics, polymer chemistry, and physics. Main struggle is that the inverse Langevin function cannot be expressed in an exact analytical form. To this end, many approaches to estimate the inverse Langevin function have been proposed. A trade-off can be observed between level of accuracy and mathematical complexity in the existing approximants in the literature. In the present contribution, a simple, yet efficient one-pass predictor-corrector algorithm is proposed for the accurate prediction of the inverse Langevin function. The predictor step uses the approximants yp(x) proposed in the literature. The corrector term is based on a single iteration applied to the error function (Formula presented.) (yp) – x. The correction term is based on the yp and has the same form irrespective of the specific approximant used in the predictor step. Hence, the additional computational cost is constant irrespective of the approximant used as predictor. In order to demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the approach, maximum relative error and the computational cost before and after corrector step are analysed for eight different approximants. The proposed one-pass predictor-corrector approach allows the use of relatively simpler approximants of the inverse Langevin function by improving their accuracy by at least an order of magnitude.

Summary of the Abrahamson and Gulerce NGA-SUB ground-motion model for subduction earthquakes
Abrahamson, Norman A; Gülerce, Zeynep (2022-01-01)
© The Author(s) 2022.A set of region-specific ground-motion models (GMMs) for subduction zone earthquakes are developed based on the database compiled by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research Center (PEER) Next Generation Attenuation: Subduction project (NGA-SUB). The subset used to develop the GMMs includes 3914 recordings from 113 subduction interface earthquakes with magnitudes between 5 and 9.2 and 4850 recordings from 89 intraslab events with magnitudes between 5 and 7.8. The functional form of t...
Comparative biological network analysis for differentially expressed proteins as a function of bacilysin biosynthesis in Bacillus subtilis

For permissions, please e-mail: journals.permission@oup.com.The Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis produces a diverse range of secondary metabolites with different structures and activities. Among them, bacilysin is an enzymatically synthesized dipeptide that consists of L-alanine and L-anticapsin. Previous research by our group has suggested bacilysin's role as a pleiotropic molecule in its producer, B. subtilis PY79. H...
Efficient exascale discretizations: High-order finite element methods
Kolev, Tzanio; et. al. (2021-01-01)
© The Author(s) 2021.Efficient exploitation of exascale architectures requires rethinking of the numerical algorithms used in many large-scale applications. These architectures favor algorithms that expose ultra fine-grain parallelism and maximize the ratio of floating point operations to energy intensive data movement. One of the few viable approaches to achieve high efficiency in the area of PDE discretizations on unstructured grids is to use matrix-free/partially assembled high-order finite element metho...

© The Author(s) 2022.In this article, ground-motion models (GMMs) for subduction earthquakes recently developed as part of the Next Generation Attenuation-Subduction (NGA-Sub) project are compared. The four models presented in this comparison study are documented in their respective articles submitted along with this article. Each of these four models is based on the analysis of the large NGA-Sub database. Three of the four current models are developed for a global version as well as separate regionalized m...
A Minimal Maslov Number Condition for Displaceability in Certain Weakly Exact Symplectic Manifolds
Şirikçi, Nil İpek (2022-08-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.We present a proof of a result which gives an upper bound for the minimal Maslov number of a displaceable n-dimensional Lagrangian submanifold in a weakly exact symplectic manifold with minimal Chern number at least n. The proof utilizes a result on the Conley-Zehnder index of a periodic orbit of the flow of a specifically constructed Floer Hamiltonian and an index relation.
