Mathematical optimization for the inverse problem of intensity modulated radiation therapy
Yair Censor (yairmath.haifa.ac.il)
Abstract: In this tutorial we discuss modeling issues in intensity modulated radiation therapy, contrasting the continuous model with the fully-discretized one and considering feasibility formulations versus optimization setups. We review briefly some mathematical optimization techniques for IMRT. These include global optimization, multi-objective optimization, linear and mixed integer programming and projection methods.
Keywords: Intensity-modulated, radiation therapy, inverse problem, projection methods, multiobjective, simulated annealing.
