Tunable CROW filter in Interconnect

      I was trying to understand how the circuit of CROW filter from the guide (Tunable CROW Filter – Lumerical Support) works but could not find it out. The question is how does the highlighted part of a thermal tuner circuit work? Why is there a negative gain, adder, fork, multiplier sequence?

      This part of the circuit calculates the square of the difference between the anode and cathode voltage values. The gain and the sum elements find the difference between the voltages and the fork and multiplier elements find the square of this difference. It does this because the thermal tuner elements are calibrated with a tuning efficiency given in m/V^2.
