On linear infeasibility arising in intensity-modulated radiation therapy inverse planning

Intensity–modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) gives rise to systems of linear inequalities, representing the effects of radiation on the irradiated body. These systems are often infeasible, in which case one settles for an approximate solution, such as an {a,ß}–relaxation, meaning that no more than a percent of the inequalities are violated by no more than ß … Read more
