  1. 1. Gamma Knife treatment planning with new degrees of freedom

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : Emil Norell; [2019]
    Keywords : Stereotactic radiosurgery; Leksell Gamma Knife®; inverse planning; clustering; optimization; column generation; Stereotaktisk radiokirurgi; strålkniven; inversplanering; klustring; optimering; kolumn-generering;

    Abstract : The Leksell Gamma Knife® is an instrument designed for high precision treatment of tumours and lesions located in the brain and upper spine. Today, the radioactive cobalt-60 sources can only move linearly along the radiation unit, but the machine could be modified to include rotational motion as well. READ MORE

  2. 2. Design of bi-adhesive joint for optimal strength

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för ingenjörsvetenskap

    Author : Siva Koti Reddy Vennapusa; [2019]
    Keywords : Bi-adhesive joint; Linear elastic fracture mechanics; Cohesive zone modelling; Optimization;

    Abstract : To support the trust in the design development of adhesively bonded joints, it is important to precisely predict their mechanical failure load. A numerical simulation model with a two-dimensional linear elastic cohesive zone model using a combination of a soft and a stiff adhesive is developed to optimize the strength of a lap-joint.

  3. 3. Maximum Predictability Portfolio Optimization

    University essay from KTH/Matematik (Avd.)

    Author : Nazim Huseynov; [2019]
    Keywords : Portfolio optimization; linear programming; multi-factor model; Portföljoptimering; linjär optimering; multifaktormodell;

    Abstract : Harry Markowitz work in the 50’s spring-boarded modernportfolio theory. It gives investors quantitative tools to compose and assessasset portfolios in a systematic fashion. The main idea of the Mean-Varianceframework is that composing an optimal portfolio is equivalent to solving aquadratic optimization problem. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling time-varying loading docks

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : Carl Flogvall; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : In this paper several Markov models have been created for simulating queues at loading docks with discrete time Markov chains and a optimization algorithm in regard to server capacity has been presented. The queuing systems have been modeled with exponential and Erlang-2 distributed service rate. READ MORE
