A Multiobjective Approach for Sector Duration Optimization in Stereotactic Radiosurgery Treatment Planning

Sector duration optimization (SDO) is a problem arising in treatment planning for stereotactic radiosurgery on Gamma Knife. Given a set of isocenter locations, SDO aims to select collimator size configurations and irradiation times thereof such that target tissues receive prescribed doses in a reasonable amount of treatment time, while healthy tissues nearby are spared. We … Read more

Routing and Wavelength Assignment with Protection: A Quadratic Unconstrained Binary Optimization Approach

The routing and wavelength assignment with protection is an important problem in telecommunications. Given an optical network and incoming connection requests, a commonly studied variant of the problem aims to grant maximum number of requests by assigning lightpaths at minimum network resource usage level, while ensuring the provided services remain functional in case of a … Read more
