We present an efficient implementation of an approximate balanced truncation model reduction technique for general large-scale RLC systems, described by a state-space model where the "C" matrix in the time-domain modified nodal analysis (MNA) circuit equation "C\dot{x}=-Gx+Bu" is not necessarily invertible. The large sizes of the models that we consider(More)
We present a framework for passivity-preserving model reduction for RLC systems that includes, as a special case, the well-known PRIMA model reduction algorithm. This framework provides a new interpretation for PRIMA, and offers a qualitative explanation as to why PRIMA performs remarkably well in practice. In addition, the framework enables the derivation(More)
The aim of this study was to perform a thermodynamic and kinetic investigation on the crucial factors affecting the cocrystallization between adefovir dipivoxil (AD) and saccharin (SAC). Phase solubility diagrams and ternary phase diagrams were constructed based on the solubility data of AD, SAC and their cocrystals in ethanol, isopropanol and ethyl acetate(More)
Temperature dependent He-irradiation-induced ion-beam mixing between amorphous silicon oxycarbide (SiOC) and crystalline Fe was examined with a transmission electron microscope (TEM) and via Rutherford backscattering spectrometry (RBS). The Fe marker layer (7.2 ± 0.8 nm) was placed in between two amorphous SiOC layers (200 nm). The amount of ion-beam mixing(More)
Prediction of the possibility for the formation of new compounds is an important problem of materials science. In the present study, different computer training methods (support vector machine; algorithm for calculating estimates; voting algorithms based on deadlock tests, logical regularities, and statistically weighted syndromes; linear machine(More)
Strain is a novel approach to manipulating functionalities in correlated complex oxides. However, significant epitaxial strain can only be achieved in ultrathin layers. We show that, under direct lattice matching framework, large and uniform vertical strain up to 2% can be achieved to significantly modify the magnetic anisotropy, magnetism, and(More)
