Using the Least Absolute Shrinkage and Selection Operator (LASSO) technique, we analyze a long-standing issue in the field of magnetism: the relationship between orbital magnetic moments and magnetocrystalline anisotropy (MCA) energy in transition-metal thin films. Our LASSO regression utilizes the data obtained from first principles calculations for single slabs with six atomic-layers of binary Au-Fe, Au-Co, and Fe-Co films on MgO(001). In the case of Fe-Co thin films, we have successfully regressed the MCA energy against the anisotropy of orbital moments along the in-plane and the perpendicular plane directions, giving a linear behavior. For the Au-Fe and Au-Co thin films, however, our data-driven analysis shows no relation between the MCA energy and the anisotropy of orbital moments.
