Author(s): Kang Luo, Alberto T. Pérez, Jian Wu, Hong-Liang Yi, and He-Ping Tan

Melting in the presence of electrohydrodynamic (EHD) flow driven by the Coulomb force in dielectric phase change material is numerically studied. A model is developed for the EHD flow in the solid-liquid phase change process. The fully coupled equations including mechanical equations, electrical equ...

Lanczos-boosted numerical linked-cluster expansion for quantum lattice models

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 10:00

Author(s): Krishnakumar Bhattaram and Ehsan Khatami

Numerical linked-cluster expansions allow one to calculate finite-temperature properties of quantum lattice models directly in the thermodynamic limit through exact solutions of small clusters. However, full diagonalization is often the limiting factor for these calculations. Here we show that a par...

Author(s): Hualiang Shi and Ya Yan Lu

Open subwavelength cylindrical resonators of finite height are widely used in various photonics applications. Circular cylindrical resonators are particularly important in nanophotonics, since they are relatively easy to fabricate and can be designed to exhibit different resonance effects. In this p...

Author(s): Zhaowu Lin and Tong Gao

We present a direct-forcing fictitious domain method for simulating non-Brownian squirmer particles with both the hydrodynamic interactions and collisions being fully resolved. In this method, we solve the particle motion by distributing collocation points inside the particle interior domain that ov...

Temperature-scaled collision process for the high-order lattice Boltzmann model

Tue, 07/02/2019 - 10:00

Author(s): Xuhui Li (李旭晖), Yangyang Shi (师羊羊), and Xiaowen Shan (单肖文)

We postulate that the relaxations of the distribution function in the lattice Boltzmann model should be self-similar under temperature scaling. Based on this postulation, a multiple-relaxation-time collision model in the relative, temperature-scaled reference frame is devised with Hermite expansion....

Author(s): Maria Chiara Angelini and Federico Ricci-Tersenghi

The effectiveness of stochastic algorithms based on Monte Carlo dynamics in solving hard optimization problems is mostly unknown. Beyond the basic statement that at a dynamical phase transition the ergodicity breaks and a Monte Carlo dynamics cannot sample correctly the probability distribution in t...

Author(s): X. C. Chen, Yu. A. Litvinov, M. Wang, Q. Wang, and Y. H. Zhang

This work concerns noise reduction for one-dimensional spectra in the case that the signal is corrupted by an additive white noise. The proposed method starts with mapping the noisy spectrum to a partial circulant matrix. In virtue of singular-value decomposition of the matrix, components belonging ...

Author(s): Oliver K. Ernst, Thomas M. Bartol, Terrence J. Sejnowski, and Eric Mjolsness

Many physical systems are described by probability distributions that evolve in both time and space. Modeling these systems is often challenging due to their large state space and analytically intractable or computationally expensive dynamics. To address these problems, we study a machine-learning a...

Author(s): Zheng Zhu, Andrew J. Ochoa, and Helmut G. Katzgraber

Although many efficient heuristics have been developed to solve binary optimization problems, these typically produce correlated solutions for degenerate problems. Most notably, transverse-field quantum annealing—the heuristic employed in current commercially available quantum annealing machines—has...

Author(s): Gökberk Kabacaoğlu and George Biros

Particulate Stokesian flows describe the hydrodynamics of rigid or deformable particles in Stokes flows. Due to highly nonlinear fluid-structure interaction dynamics, moving interfaces, and multiple scales, numerical simulations of such flows are challenging and expensive. Here, we propose a generic...
