Abstract

In this paper we continue our study of coarse-graining schemes for stochastic many-body microscopic models started in Katsoulakis et al. [M. Katsoulakis, A. Majda, D. Vlachos, Coarse-grained stochastic processes for microscopic lattice systems, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. 100 (2003) 782-782, M.A. Katsoulakis, L. Rey-Bellet, P. Plecháč, D. Tsagkarogiannis, Coarse-graining schemes and a posteriori error estimates for stochastic lattice systems, M2AN Math. Model. Numer. Anal., in press], focusing on equilibrium stochastic lattice systems. Using cluster expansion techniques we expand the exact coarse-grained Hamiltonian around a first approximation and derive higher accuracy schemes by including more terms in the expansion. The accuracy of the coarse-graining schemes is measured in terms of information loss, i.e., relative entropy, between the exact and approximate coarse-grained Gibbs measures. We test the effectiveness of our schemes in systems with competing short- and long-range interactions, using an analytically solvable model as a computational benchmark. Furthermore, the cluster expansion in Katsoulakis et al. [M.A. Katsoulakis, L. Rey-Bellet, P. Plecháč, D. Tsagkarogiannis, Coarse-graining schemes and a posteriori error estimates for stochastic lattice systems, M2AN Math. Model. Numer. Anal., in press] yields sharp a posteriori error estimates for the coarse-grained approximations that can be computed on-the-fly during the simulation. Based on these estimates we develop a numerical strategy to assess the quality of the coarse-graining and suitably refine or coarsen the simulations. We demonstrate the use of this diagnostic tool in the numerical calculation of phase diagrams. © 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
