                         our computational modeling using samples having particles with 
                         different sizes and different angular distributions of the easy 
                         axis of magnetization. A simple numerical approach with minimum of

                         the samples. Reasonable simulation results are generated based on 
                         realistic size distributions and angular distributions of easy
