Simplified methods for pKa and acid pH-dependent stability estimation in proteins: removing dielectric and counterion boundaries. (1/4146)

Much computational research aimed at understanding ionizable group interactions in proteins has focused on numerical solutions of the Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation, incorporating protein exclusion zones for solvent and counterions in a continuum model. Poor agreement with measured pKas and pH-dependent stabilities for a (protein, solvent) relative dielectric boundary of (4,80) has lead to the adoption of an intermediate (20,80) boundary. It is now shown that a simple Debye-Huckel (DH) calculation, removing both the low dielectric and counterion exclusion regions associated with protein, is equally effective in general pKa calculations. However, a broad-based discrepancy to measured pH-dependent stabilities is maintained in the absence of ionizable group interactions in the unfolded state. A simple model is introduced for these interactions, with a significantly improved match to experiment that suggests a potential utility in predicting and analyzing the acid pH-dependence of protein stability. The methods are applied to the relative pH-dependent stabilities of the pore-forming domains of colicins A and N. The results relate generally to the well-known preponderance of surface ionizable groups with solvent-mediated interactions. Although numerical PB solutions do not currently have a significant advantage for overall pKa estimations, development based on consideration of microscopic solvation energetics in tandem with the continuum model could combine the large deltapKas of a subset of ionizable groups with the overall robustness of the DH model.  (+info)

Temporal and multiple quantitative trait loci analyses of resistance to bacterial wilt in tomato permit the resolution of linked loci. (2/4146)

Ralstonia solanacearum is a soil-borne bacterium that causes the serious disease known as bacterial wilt in many plant species. In tomato, several QTL controlling resistance have been found, but in different studies, markers spanning a large region of chromosome 6 showed strong association with the resistance. By using two different approaches to analyze the data from a field test F3 population, we show that at least two separate loci approximately 30 cM apart on this chromosome are most likely involved in the resistance. First, a temporal analysis of the progression of symptoms reveals a distal locus early in the development of the disease. As the disease progresses, the maximum LOD peak observed shifts toward the proximal end of the chromosome, obscuring the distal locus. Second, although classical interval mapping could only detect the presence of one locus, a statistical "two-QTL model" test, specifically adapted for the resolution of linked QTL, strongly supported the hypothesis for the presence of two loci. These results are discussed in the context of current molecular knowledge about disease resistance genes on chromosome 6 and observations made by tomato breeders during the production of bacterial wilt-resistant varieties.  (+info)

Local control models of cardiac excitation-contraction coupling. A possible role for allosteric interactions between ryanodine receptors. (3/4146)

In cardiac muscle, release of activator calcium from the sarcoplasmic reticulum occurs by calcium- induced calcium release through ryanodine receptors (RyRs), which are clustered in a dense, regular, two-dimensional lattice array at the diad junction. We simulated numerically the stochastic dynamics of RyRs and L-type sarcolemmal calcium channels interacting via calcium nano-domains in the junctional cleft. Four putative RyR gating schemes based on single-channel measurements in lipid bilayers all failed to give stable excitation-contraction coupling, due either to insufficiently strong inactivation to terminate locally regenerative calcium-induced calcium release or insufficient cooperativity to discriminate against RyR activation by background calcium. If the ryanodine receptor was represented, instead, by a phenomenological four-state gating scheme, with channel opening resulting from simultaneous binding of two Ca2+ ions, and either calcium-dependent or activation-linked inactivation, the simulations gave a good semiquantitative accounting for the macroscopic features of excitation-contraction coupling. It was possible to restore stability to a model based on a bilayer-derived gating scheme, by introducing allosteric interactions between nearest-neighbor RyRs so as to stabilize the inactivated state and produce cooperativity among calcium binding sites on different RyRs. Such allosteric coupling between RyRs may be a function of the foot process and lattice array, explaining their conservation during evolution.  (+info)

Quantal amplitude and quantal variance of strontium-induced asynchronous EPSCs in rat dentate granule neurons. (4/4146)

1. Excitatory postsynaptic currents (EPSCs) were recorded from granule cells of the dentate gyrus in acute slices of 17- to 21-day-old rats (22-25 C) using tissue cuts and minimal extracellular stimulation to selectively activate a small number of synaptic contacts. 2. Adding millimolar Sr2+ to the external solution produced asynchronous EPSCs (aEPSCs) lasting for several hundred milliseconds after the stimulus. Minimally stimulated aEPSCs resembled miniature EPSCs (mEPSCs) recorded in the same cell but differed from them in ways expected from the greater range of dendritic filtering experienced by mEPSCs. aEPSCs had the same stimulus threshold as the synchronous EPSCs (sEPSCs) that followed the stimulus with a brief latency. aEPSCs following stimulation of distal inputs had a slower mean rise time than those following stimulation of proximal inputs. These results suggest that aEPSCs arose from the same synapses that generated sEPSCs. 3. Proximally elicited aEPSCs had a mean amplitude of 6.7 +/- 2.2 pA (+/- s.d., n = 23 cells) at -70 mV and an amplitude coefficient of variation of 0. 46 +/- 0.08. 4. The amplitude distributions of sEPSCs never exhibited distinct peaks. 5. Monte Carlo modelling of the shapes of aEPSC amplitude distributions indicated that our data were best explained by an intrasite model of quantal variance. 6. It is concluded that Sr2+-evoked aEPSCs are uniquantal events arising at synaptic terminals that were recently invaded by an action potential, and so provide direct information about the quantal amplitude and quantal variance at those terminals. The large quantal variance obscures quantization of the amplitudes of evoked sEPSCs at this class of excitatory synapse.  (+info)

Bayesian inference on biopolymer models. (5/4146)

MOTIVATION: Most existing bioinformatics methods are limited to making point estimates of one variable, e.g. the optimal alignment, with fixed input values for all other variables, e.g. gap penalties and scoring matrices. While the requirement to specify parameters remains one of the more vexing issues in bioinformatics, it is a reflection of a larger issue: the need to broaden the view on statistical inference in bioinformatics. RESULTS: The assignment of probabilities for all possible values of all unknown variables in a problem in the form of a posterior distribution is the goal of Bayesian inference. Here we show how this goal can be achieved for most bioinformatics methods that use dynamic programming. Specifically, a tutorial style description of a Bayesian inference procedure for segmentation of a sequence based on the heterogeneity in its composition is given. In addition, full Bayesian inference algorithms for sequence alignment are described. AVAILABILITY: Software and a set of transparencies for a tutorial describing these ideas are available at  (+info)

A hierarchical approach to protein molecular evolution. (6/4146)

Biological diversity has evolved despite the essentially infinite complexity of protein sequence space. We present a hierarchical approach to the efficient searching of this space and quantify the evolutionary potential of our approach with Monte Carlo simulations. These simulations demonstrate that nonhomologous juxtaposition of encoded structure is the rate-limiting step in the production of new tertiary protein folds. Nonhomologous "swapping" of low-energy secondary structures increased the binding constant of a simulated protein by approximately 10(7) relative to base substitution alone. Applications of our approach include the generation of new protein folds and modeling the molecular evolution of disease.  (+info)

The topomer-sampling model of protein folding. (7/4146)

Clearly, a protein cannot sample all of its conformations (e.g., approximately 3(100) approximately 10(48) for a 100 residue protein) on an in vivo folding timescale (<1 s). To investigate how the conformational dynamics of a protein can accommodate subsecond folding time scales, we introduce the concept of the native topomer, which is the set of all structures similar to the native structure (obtainable from the native structure through local backbone coordinate transformations that do not disrupt the covalent bonding of the peptide backbone). We have developed a computational procedure for estimating the number of distinct topomers required to span all conformations (compact and semicompact) for a polypeptide of a given length. For 100 residues, we find approximately 3 x 10(7) distinct topomers. Based on the distance calculated between different topomers, we estimate that a 100-residue polypeptide diffusively samples one topomer every approximately 3 ns. Hence, a 100-residue protein can find its native topomer by random sampling in just approximately 100 ms. These results suggest that subsecond folding of modest-sized, single-domain proteins can be accomplished by a two-stage process of (i) topomer diffusion: random, diffusive sampling of the 3 x 10(7) distinct topomers to find the native topomer ( approximately 0.1 s), followed by (ii) intratopomer ordering: nonrandom, local conformational rearrangements within the native topomer to settle into the precise native state.  (+info)

Testing the fit of a quantal model of neurotransmission. (8/4146)

Many studies of synaptic transmission have assumed a parametric model to estimate the mean quantal content and size or the effect upon them of manipulations such as the induction of long-term potentiation. Classical tests of fit usually assume that model parameters have been selected independently of the data. Therefore, their use is problematic after parameters have been estimated. We hypothesized that Monte Carlo (MC) simulations of a quantal model could provide a table of parameter-independent critical values with which to test the fit after parameter estimation, emulating Lilliefors's tests. However, when we tested this hypothesis within a conventional quantal model, the empirical distributions of two conventional goodness-of-fit statistics were affected by the values of the quantal parameters, falsifying the hypothesis. Notably, the tests' critical values increased when the combined variances of the noise and quantal-size distributions were reduced, increasing the distinctness of quantal peaks. Our results support two conclusions. First, tests that use a predetermined critical value to assess the fit of a quantal model after parameter estimation may operate at a differing unknown level of significance for each experiment. Second, a MC test enables a valid assessment of the fit of a quantal model after parameter estimation.  (+info)

N2 - Grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations were used to study the effect of dealumination on adsorption of xenon in an idealized structural model of Na-mordenite. Simulations were carried out at Si/Al ratios of 5, 11, and ∞, chosen to represent prototype cation occupancies. A recent experimental study of xenon adsorption in mordenites with different Si/Al ratios found unexpected nonmonotonic trends. In disagreement with experiment, the isotherms of our idealized zeolite changed monotonically with the degree of dealumination. This trend supports recent observations that significant structural chages result from dealumination.. AB - Grand canonical Monte Carlo simulations were used to study ...
The recent development of on-the-fly atomistic kinetic Monte Carlo methods has led to an increased amount attention on the methods and their corresponding capabilities and applications. In this review, the framework and current status of Self-Evolving Atomistic Kinetic Monte Carlo (SEAKMC) are discussed. SEAKMC particularly focuses on defect interaction and evolution with atomistic details without assuming potential defect migration/interaction mechanisms and energies. The strength and limitation of using an active volume, the key concept introduced in SEAKMC, are discussed. Potential criteria for characterizing an active volume are discussed and the influence of active volume size on saddle point energies is illustrated. A procedure starting with a small active volume followed by larger active volumes was found to possess higher efficiency. Applications of SEAKMC, ranging from point defect diffusion, to complex interstitial cluster evolution, to helium interaction with tungsten surfaces, are ...

The simulation results have been combined with Monte Carlo simulation of the X-ray photon transport and absorption, and used to estimate the image properties of a detector system, including the pixel array and readout electronics.

If you have a question about this talk, please contact Rachel Fogg.. Great technological and experimental advances have recently facilitated the imaging neural activity both in live animals. We describe a sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) expectation maximization algorithm that both infers the posterior distributions of the hidden states, and finds the maximum likelihood estimates of the parameters. Using such an approach enables us to (i) incorporate errorbars on the estimate of the hidden states, (ii) allow for nonlinearities in the observation and transition distributions, and (iii) consider Markov priors governing neural activity. This strategy works in real time for each observable neuron. We show how this method can condition the inferred spike trains on external stimuli, and achieve superresolution, i.e., infer not just whether a spike occurred within a stimulus frame, but when within that frame. Furthermore, our model has a relatively small number of parameters, and each of the parameters may ...
Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulation has received considerable attention within the past decade as reportedly one of the most powerful techniques for the first passage probability estimation of dynamic systems. A very popular method in this direction capable of estimating probability of rare events with low computation cost is the subset simulation (SS). The idea of the method is to break a rare event into a sequence of more probable events which are easy to be estimated based on the conditional simulation techniques. Recently, two algorithms have been proposed in order to increase the efficiency of the method by modifying the conditional sampler. In this paper, applicability of the original SS is compared to the recently introduced modifications of the method on a wind turbine model. The model incorporates a PID pitch controller which aims at keeping the rotational speed of the wind turbine rotor equal to its nominal value. Finally Monte Carlo simulations are performed which allow assessment of ...
The current paper presents a comparative investigation of the experimental as well as simulated evaluation of effective area and the associated uncertainties, of a pneumatic pressure reference standard (NPLI-4) of CSIR-National Physical Laboratory, India, (NPLI). The experimental evaluation has been compared to the simulated estimation of the effective area obtained through Monte Carlo method (MCM). The Monte Carlo method has been applied by taking fixed number of trials (FMCM) and also by trials chosen adaptively (AMCM). The measurement uncertainties have been calculated using the conventional method, i.e., law of propagation of uncertainty (LPU) as well as MCM. Experimentally, the NPLI-4 has cross-floated against our newly established pneumatic primary pressure standard (NPLI-P10), which is a large diameter piston gauge. An excellent agreement in effective area and measurement uncertainty has been observed between these approaches ...
Introduction Proton therapy is used to treat malignant tumors such as melanoma inside the eye. Proton particles are adjusted according to various parameters such as tumor size and position and patients distance from the proton source. The purpose of this study was to assess absorbed doses in eyes and various tumors found in the area of sclera and choroid and the adjacent tissues in radiotherapy while changing most important proton therapy parameters such as moderators thickness (1.5-1.9 cm), exposure radius (0.5-0.8 cm), and proton energy beam (53.5-65 MeV). Materials and Methods A proton therapy system of Laboratori Nazionali del Sud-INFNwas simulated by Monte Carlo method. Moreover, the eye and its components were simulated using concentric spheres. To obtain a more accurate results, real density of eye components such as cornea and lens, were applied for simulation. Then, the absorbed dose of eye and eye tumor, in choroid and sclera areas, were calculated by Monte Carlo method. Results The absorbed
Three different mathematical approaches for the evolution of diffusion equation are presented. The evolution process of the diffusion equation is explained by principle of conservation law, probability distribution procedure, and finally though stochastic differential equation (SDE) driven by Brownian motion. The Monte Carlo method is discussed to solve the diffusion equation by generating the normally distributed random numbers and the root mean square error is derived for the Monte Carlo method. The numerical solutions are computed for 1-dimensional diffusion equation and results are compared with exact solution. Finally, theoretical root mean square error is compared with the maximum error and the L2-error by increasing the number of simulated points.. ...

Target tracking is a challenging task and generally no analytical solution is available, especially for the multi-target tracking systems. To address this problem, probability hypothesis density (PHD) filter is used by propagating the PHD instead of the full multi-target posterior. Recently, the particle flow filter based on the log homotopy provides a new way for state estimation. In this paper, we propose a novel sequential Monte Carlo (SMC) implementation for the PHD filter assisted by the particle flow (PF), which is called PF-SMCPHD filter. Experimental results show that our proposed filter has higher accuracy than the SMC-PHD filter and is computationally cheaper than the Gaussian mixture PHD (GM-PHD) filter.. ...
It is a computation process that uses random numbers to produce an outcome(s). Instead of having fixed inputs, probability distributions are assigned to some or all of the inputs. This will generate a probability distribution for the output after the simulation is run.. For example, a Monte Carlo algorithm can be used to estimate the value of π. The amount of area within a quarter-circle of radius 1 depends on the value of π. The probability that a randomly-chosen point will lie in that quarter-circle depends on the area of the circle. If points are placed randomly in a square with sides of length 1, the percentage of points that fall within a quarter-circle of radius 1 will depend on the value of π. A Monte Carlo algorithm would randomly place points in the square and use the percentage of points falling inside of the circle to estimate the value of π.This is an effective way for making approximations.. In modern communication systems, the quality of information exchange is determined by ...

MCM-41 is a suitable model on which to test our understanding of adsorption at the molecular level, and to evaluate methods for the prediction of multicomponent adsorption equilibrium.

IAST gives good predictions for ethane/carbon dioxide mixture adsorption equilibrium at low and moderate pressures, and exhibits some deviations at relatively high pressures.. AB - We ...
Being secret, the work of von Neumann and Ulam required a code name.[14] A colleague of von Neumann and Ulam, Nicholas Metropolis, suggested using the name Monte Carlo, which refers to the Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco where Ulams uncle would borrow money from relatives to gamble.[12] Using lists of truly random random numbers was extremely slow, but von Neumann developed a way to calculate pseudorandom numbers, using the middle-square method. Though this method has been criticized as crude, von Neumann was aware of this: he justified it as being faster than any other method at his disposal, and also noted that when it went awry it did so obviously, unlike methods that could be subtly incorrect. Monte Carlo methods were central to the simulations required for the Manhattan Project, though severely limited by the computational tools at the time. In the 1950s they were used at Los Alamos for early work relating to the development of the hydrogen bomb, and became popularized in the fields of ...
A common managerial problem in the project-based organization is the problem of resource allocation. In practice this problem is addressed by applying project portfolio management. In this study we examine project portfolio management in a consultancy firm by applying a mathematical model. The information produced by this model could enable rational decision making and thus improve the economic resilience and reduce internal uncertainty in the firm so that it may live long and prosper. The proposed model is based on a Markov process that represents the projects in the firm. The parameters are estimated by Maximum Likelihood and the results are estimated through Monte Carlo Simulation.. This study initially shows that it is possible to model the project portfolio as a Markov process. This was supported by the conducted literature review and illustrated by the presented model. Furthermore, we conclude that the value of accepting a project is dependent on the current state of the firm in terms of ...

Radiation interaction with matter is by nature stochastic. Monte Carlo simulation makes possible, practical, economical and ethical, many experiments otherwise not. In-silico simulation of random samples of radiation histories places into our hands data which may be treated and analysed in radically different ways. This work reports history-by-history computation of the variance in simulation output from FLUKA, a general-purpose Monte Carlo code. Variance computed history by history is compared with variance estimated from varying batch sizes. This work also addresses the issue of under-sampling where, against conventional expectations, the variance spikes as we sample more histories. The background to the spikes is traced by reconstructing single histories interaction by interaction-a novel level of details atypical of Monte Carlo simulations in the field, where statistical convergence of averaged quantities has been the focus.

Downloadable! This paper studies performance of both point and interval predictors of technical inefficiency in the stochastic production frontier model using a Monte Carlo experiment. In point prediction we use the Jondrow et al. (1980) point predictor of technical inefficiency, while for interval prediction the Horrace and Schmidt (1996) and Hjalmarsson et al. (1996) results are used. When ML estimators are used we find negative bias in point predictions. MSEs are found to decline as the sample size increases. The mean empirical coverage accuracy of the confidence intervals are significantly below the theoretical confidence level for all values of the variance ratio.

Temperature profiles across the simulated region corresponding to different heat generation distributions are shown to be nonuniform with peak temperature and temperature range values dependent upon the device bias. The microscopic details of charge transport are studied, and the relationship between the thermal droop and the ...
Abstract: We report developments of the kinetic Monte Carlo (KMC) method with improved accuracy and increased versatility for the description of atomic diffusivity on metal surfaces. The on-lattice constraint built into our recently proposed Self-Learning KMC (SLKMC) [1] is released, leaving atoms free to occupy Off-Lattice positions to accommodate several processes responsible for small-cluster diffusion, periphery atom motion and hetero-epitaxial growth. The technique combines the ideas embedded in the SLKMC method with a new pattern recognition scheme fitted to an Off-Lattice model in which relative atomic positions is used to characterize and store configurations. Application of a combination of the drag and the Repulsive Bias Potential (RBP) methods for saddle points searches, allows the treatment of concerted cluster, and multiple and single atom motions on equal footing. This tandem approach has helped reveal several new atomic mechanisms which contribute to cluster migration. We present ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Incorporation of multivariate statistical distribution of magnitude-distance and Monte-Carlo simulation in probabilistic seismic hazard analysis. AU - Azarbakht, Alireza. AU - Ebrahimi, Mohammad Ali. PY - 2019/7/31. Y1 - 2019/7/31. N2 - The classical seismic hazard analysis is based on two independent simplified assumptions including the statistical distribution of magnitude (usually Gutenberg-Richter 1958) and the distance distribution (equal probability in each point of a given source). However, the interaction between the two distributions is rarely discussed in past researches. Therefore, a joint M-R distribution has been implemented in this paper in order to shed light into these simplified assumptions. The Tehran metropolis is considered as the case study since it locates in a highly active seismic region.

A method like this is required to efficiently avoid local minima, evaluate non-uniqueness in the solution and estimating the values and uncertainties of the model parameters. The pure Monte Carlo method applied to surface wave inversion becomes efficient with the introduction of a 'smart sampling' rule which exploits the scale property (scaling of the modal solution with the wavelength) of the solution. Introducing this property in the Monte Carlo inversion focuses the scan of model space on high probability density zones. Each model is scaled before evaluating the misfit in order to bring the theoretical dispersion curve obtained by forward algorithm closer to the experimental. An applicative example is presented to support our hypothesis. <br>The main advantage of the proposed approach, based on scale property of dispersion curves, is the
4 Instituto de Catálisis y Petroleoquímica, CSIC, Cantoblanco, E-28049-Madrid, Spain Abstract The reducibility of molybdenum oxide supported on γ-Al2O3 was studied by temperature programmed reduction (TPR). Interpretation of the reduction profiles was successfully achieved by applying the Monte Carlo method and taking into account the presence of different molybdenum species on the support surface. Seven reactions were assumed to take place along the reduction process. The first hydrogen consumption peak was assigned to the reduction of Mo6+ ions present as well-dispersed polymeric species into Mo+5, while the second one accounts for the reduction not of the Mo5+ ions generated in the first reduction into Mo+4 but also for the reduction of monomeric Mo6+species. Keywords Mo Catalysts. Monte Carlo Method. Temperature Programmed Reduction. I. INTRODUCTION The interaction of molybdenum oxides on the alumina surface and their reduction processes have been extensively investigated as documented in ...
The class was given a graph with the x-axis numbering up to 24. They were required to start at the number 20 and after rolling a six sided dice, subtract the number rolled from 20 and keep rolling until they got to zero. They plotted the numbers they rolled on a graph to see how many turns it took to get to zero. This was done five times for each student. The number of attempts was collected from everyone in class and average was calculated for the number of attempts required for a dice to reduce 20 to zero. The method used in class was a simplistic process of Monte Carlo, in a real life scenario the method is repeated 1,000 or more times to get a better output. Our exercise launched a discussion over the actual value of a monte carlo simulation compared to other forms of regression. We came to the conclusion that Monte Carlo does offer different kinds of answers that could be more valuable in the uncertain world of intelligence analysis. ...
We present a method for restoration of audio which has been distorted by a nonlinear channel or recording medium. We model the signal as a linear process cascaded with a nonlinear distortion. We use sampling methods to perform model selection and parameter estimation. We allow the linear model to be nonstationary, and present results for both synthetic and real distortions.
The present study demonstrates a simulation approach to determine the resources needed to handle urgent surgical cases. We performed a sensitivity analysis and found how wait times change as the result of changing the number of ORs, the service time (e.g., how long resources are devoted to the patient) and surgical volume. The parameters of the program (which is freely available) can be adjusted according to the characteristics of individual hospitals. For example, the number of ORs needed to achieve acceptable wait times will depend on the arrival rate of patients, length of surgical procedures and preparation/clean-up time specific to each hospital.. In the present simulation model the arrival time equates to when the decision is made to perform surgery, and the wait time is the time between the arrival time and when the patient enters the OR. The interpretation of that wait time is made from a clinically relevant perspective, i.e., how long can the patient wait before a further delay would ...

A process might contain randomness, making it impossible to predict its outcome with certainty. Instead, you can simulate the process. To do this, you have to simulate the randomness, which is what Monte Carlo simulation does. The Excel AnalysisTool Pak Random Number Generation tool is perfect for creating Monte Carlo simulations. Joe shows you how to use this tool to create simulations that use the Discrete distribution. Youll then be able to simulate a variety of processes.
The size dependence of the order-disorder transition in FePt nanoparticles with an L10 structure is investigated by means of Monte Carlo simulations based on an analytic bond-order potential for FePt. A cross parametrization for the Fe-Pt interaction is proposed, which complements existing potentials for the constituents Fe and Pt. This FePt potential properly describes structural properties of ordered and disordered phases, surface energies, and the L10 to A1 transition temperature in bulk FePt. The potential is applied for examining the ordering behavior in small particles. The observed lowering of the order-disorder transition temperature with decreasing particle size confirms previous lattice-based Monte Carlo simulations [M. Müller and K. Albe, Phys. Rev. B 72, 094203 (2005)]. Although a distinctly higher amount of surface induced disorder is found in comparison to previous studies based on lattice-type Hamiltonians, the presence of lattice strain caused by the tetragonal distortion of the L10

We develop a simple Monte Carlo method to compute the position at a given time of a diffusion on a graph, with constant speed on each edge. This method is exact, and we claim it could be used for simulating the position of a particle in a fissured media. Besides, we advocate that the notion of diffusions on graphs could be useful to understand the behavior of one-dimensional diffusions whose infinitesimal generator has piecewise constant coefficients. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Selective hydrogen production at Pt(111) investigated by Quantum Monte Carlo methods for metal catalysis. AU - Sharma, Rajesh O.. AU - Rantala, Tapio T.. AU - Hoggan, Philip E.. PY - 2020/6/5. Y1 - 2020/6/5. N2 - This rapid communication gives the salient points and results of the theoretical investigation of a chemical reaction for efficient selective hydrogen production. The clean fuel produced is a sustainable energy source. Accurate methods based on quantum theory are used because the changing electronic structure is a probe that monitors reactions. The reaction between water and carbon monoxide is used industrially with metal catalysts, usually platinum. There is a considerable economic and environmental challenge underpinning this fundamental investigation where bond dissociation plays an essential role. A bond dissociation process is often the limiting step of reaction rates for industrial catalysis. Most mainstream quantum approaches fail to a greater or lesser degree in ...

Background Self-contained tests estimate and test the association between a phenotype and mean expression level in a gene set defined a priori. Many self-contained gene set analysis methods have been developed but the performance of these methods for phenotypes that are continuous rather than discrete and with multiple nuisance covariates has not been well studied. Here, I use Monte Carlo simulation to evaluate the performance of both novel and previously published (and readily available via R) methods for inferring effects of a continuous predictor on mean expression in the presence of nuisance covariates. The motivating data are a high-profile dataset which was used to show opposing effects of hedonic and eudaimonic well-being (or happiness) on the mean expression level of a set of genes that has been correlated with social adversity (the CTRA gene set). The original analysis of these data used a linear model (GLS) of fixed effects with correlated error to infer effects of Hedonia and Eudaimonia on
This paper presents an original Markov chain Monte Carlo method to sample from the posterior distribution of conjugate mixture models. This algorithm relies on a flexible split-merge procedure built using the particle Gibbs sampler introduced in Andrieu et al. (2009, 2010). The resulting so-called Particle Gibbs Split-Merge sampler does not require the computation of a complex acceptance ratio and can be implemented using existing sequential Monte Carlo libraries. We investigate its performance experimentally on synthetic problems as well as on geolocation data. Our results show that for a given computational budget, the Particle Gibbs Split-Merge sampler empirically outperforms existing split merge methods. The code and instructions allowing to reproduce the experiments is available at PDF BibTeX ...

Simulated detection of gamma radiation streaming from a radioactive material shipping cask have been performed with the Monte Carlo codes MCNP4A and MORSE-SGC/S. Despite inherent difficulties in simulating deep penetration of radiation and streaming, the simulations have yielded results that agree within one order of magnitude with the radiation survey data, with reasonable statistics. These simulations have also provided insight into modeling radiation detection, notably on location and orientation of the radiation detector with respect to photon streaming paths, and on techniques used to reduce variance in the Monte Carlo calculations. 13 refs., 4 figs., 2 tabs.
