Eddy currents
When magnetic flux changes in a conductor of electricity, it can induce a vortex-shaped current within the conductor, according to the laws of electromagnetic induction. The heat generated by the flow of eddy currents turns into energy loss. The location and size of eddy currents occurring within magnetic materials are determined by the material’s geometry and its electrical properties.
 Genetic algorithm
A computational method of optimization modeled on the workings of biological evolution. For a current generation of possible solutions, multiple copies are made, which are then crossed with one another and mutated, and then “survivors” are selected to create the next generation of solutions. By repeating this process, the method finds better solutions. The desired evolution is encouraged on the basis of selecting “survivors” on the degree to which they suit the appropriate parameters.
 Pareto-optimal front
When one wants to minimize multiple values that have a trade-off relationship, and when no circumstances exist that would provide smaller values for all variables than a certain set of parameters, those parameters are called the Pareto optimum. Typically multiple Pareto optimums exist, and the line or plane formed by those optimums is called the Pareto-optimal front.
 Materials infomatics
An effort to accelerate the search for new materials by combining and fusing technologies in the materials field, such as materials synthesis and analysis technologies and materials simulation, with such technologies as data science and AI. It is expected to significantly reduce the time and cost required for materials development.
