Equation-free computation of coarse-grained center manifolds of microscopic simulators

Abstract Related Papers Cited by
  • An algorithm, based on the Equation-free concept, for the approximation of coarse-grained center manifolds of microscopic simulators is addressed. It is assumed that the macroscopic equations describing the emergent dynamics are not available in a closed form. Appropriately initialized short runs of the microscopic simulators, which are treated as black box input-output maps provide a polynomial estimate of a local coarse-grained center manifold; the coefficients of the polynomial are obtained by wrapping around the microscopic simulator an optimization algorithm. The proposed method is demonstrated through kinetic Monte Carlo simulations, of simple reactions taking place on catalytic surfaces, exhibiting coarse-grained turning points and Andronov-Hopf bifurcations.
