Title: Re-evaluation of the Gottfried sum using neural networks

Abstract

We provide a determination of the Gottfried sum from all available data, based on a neural network parametrization of the nonsinglet structure function F{sub 2}. We find S{sub G}=0.244{+-}0.045, closer to the quark model expectation S{sub G}=(1/3) than previous results. We show that the uncertainty from the small x region is somewhat underestimated in previous determinations.

  • An adaptive loss evaluation algorithm for power transmission systems is proposed in this paper. The algorithm is based on training of artificial neural networks (ANNs) using backpropagation. Due to the capability of parallel information processing of the ANNs, the proposed method is fast and yet accurate. Active and reactive powers of generators and loads, as well as the magnitudes of voltages at voltage-controlled buses are chosen as inputs to the ANN. System losses are chosen as the outputs. Training data are obtained by load flow studies, assuming that the state variables of the power system to be studied take themore » values uniformly distributed in the ranges of their lower and upper limits. Load flow studies for different system topologies are carried out and the results are compiled to form the training set. Numerical results are presented in the paper to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm in terms of accuracy and speed. It is concluded that the trained ANN can be utilized for both off-line simulation studies and on-line calculation of demand and energy losses. High performance has been achieved through complex mappings, modeled by the ANN, between system losses and system topologies, operating conditions and load variations.« less
  • Traditional approaches to sensor validation involve periodic instrument calibrations. These calibrations are expensive both in labor and process downtime. Many periodic sensor calibration techniques require the process to be shut down, the instrument taken out of service, and the instrument loaded and calibrated. This method can lead to damaged equipment, incorrect calibrations due to adjustments made under nonservice conditions, and loss of product due to unnecessarily shutting down a process. A less invasive technique of determining sensor status using data from nuclear and chemical process systems is described in this paper.
  • The erratic disturbance caused by an electric arc furnace requires a fast and accurate VAr evaluation algorithm for compensation. This paper describes the development of a novel method using the approach of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) to evaluate the instantaneous VAr. Comparing to the conventional methods, this neural network based algorithm is capable of operating at a much lower sampling rate and delivering an accurate and fast response output. By hardware implementation of this algorithm using neuron chips, the erratic VAr fluctuation can be accurately estimated for compensation.
  • Experimental results obtained at the CERN Super Proton Synchrotron on the structure-function ratio {ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital n}}/{ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital p}} in the kinematic range 0.004{lt}{ital x}{lt}0.8 and 0.4{lt}{ital Q}{sup 2}{lt}190 GeV{sup 2}, together with the structure function {ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital d}} determined from a fit to published data, are used to derive the difference {ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital p}}({ital x}){minus}{ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital n}}({ital x}). The value of the Gottfried sum {integral}({ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital p}}{minus}{ital F}{sub 2}{sup {ital n}}){ital dx}/{ital x}=0.240{plus minus}0.016 is below the quark-parton-model expectation of 1/3.
  • By extending the sum rules from the current anticommutator on the null plane to the [ital K][sup [plus minus]] case, we relate the Gottfried sum rule to kaon-nucleon scattering. With the use of this relation, together with Adler-Weisberger relations, we estimate the value of the Gottfried sum rule as 0.26[plus minus]0.03 which is consistent with the recent experimental value obtained by the New Muon Collaboration.
