Mechanical responses of soft particle packings to quasi-static deformations are determined by the microscopic restructuring of force-chain networks, where complex non-affine displacements of constituent particles cause the irreversible macroscopic behavior. Recently, we have proposed a master equation for the probability distribution functions of contact forces and interparticle gaps [K. Saitoh et al., Soft Matter 11, 1253 (2015)], where mutual exchanges of contacts and interparticle gaps, i.e…
