A Mixed Integer Linear Programming Optimization Model for Capturing Expert Planning Style in Interstitial Low Dose Rate Prostate BrachytherapyDownload
Low dose rate (LDR) brachytherapy is a minimally invasive form of radiation therapy, used to treat prostate cancer, and it involves permanent implantation of radioactive sources (seeds) inside of the prostate gland. Treatment planning in brachytherapy involves a decision making process for the...
Climate change is expected to drive major changes in agricultural production around the world, but estimates of the economic impact of these changes for Canadian agricultural production have been inconsistent. Most models use aggregate temperature data such as average temperature or growing...
A simulation/optimization system for modelling timber and old forest under stochastic fire disturbanceDownload
Stochastic wildfire disturbance contributes to uncertainty in forest management planning. In this study, a system composed of an optimizing forest estate model nested within a Monte Carlo simulation model of stand replacing fires is used to investigate the impact stochastic fire may have on the...
