The superiorization method with restarted perturbations for split minimization problems with an application to radiotherapy treatment planning

In this paper we study the split minimization problem that consists of two constrained minimization problems in two separate spaces that are connected via a linear operator that maps one space into the other. To handle the data of such a problem we develop a superiorization approach that can reach a feasible point with reduced … Read more

Multistage Stochastic Fractionated Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy Planning

Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) is a widely used cancer treatment technique designed to target malignant cells. To enhance its effectiveness on tumors and reduce side effects, radiotherapy plans are usually divided into consecutive treatments, or fractions, that are delivered over multiple weeks. However, typical planning approaches have focused on finding the full sequence of … Read more
