  1. 1. On Distributed Optimization in Networked Systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Björn Johansson; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; convex optimization; resource allocation; networked systems; peer-to-peer; distributed optimization; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Telecommunication; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Telekommunikation; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Automatic control; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Numerous control and decision problems in networked systems can be posed as optimization problems. Examples include the framework of network utility maximization for resource allocation in communication networks, multi-agent coordination in robotics, and collaborative estimation in wireless sensor networks (WSNs).

  2. 2. Distributed Optimization with Nonconvexities and Limited Communication

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Sindri Magnússon; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Distributed Optimization; Resource Allocation; Power Networks; Limited Communication; Nonconvex Optimization; Wireless Sensor Networks; Cyberphysical Systems.; Electrical Engineering; Elektro- och systemteknik;

    Abstract : In economical and sustainable operation of cyber-physical systems, a number of entities need to often cooperate over a communication network to solve optimization problems. A challenging aspect in the design of robust distributed solution algorithms to these optimization problems is that as technology advances and the networks grow larger, the communication bandwidth used to coordinate the solution is limited.

  3. 3. Multicriteria optimization for managing tradeoffs in radiation therapy treatment planning

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Rasmus Bokrantz; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Optimization; multicriteria optimization; robust optimization; Pareto optimality; Pareto surface approximation; Pareto surface navigation; intensity-modulated radiation therapy; volumetric-modulated arc therapy; intensity-modulated proton therapy; Optimering; flermålsoptimering; robust optimering; Paretooptimalitet; Paretofrontsapproximation; Paretofrontsnavigering; intensitetsmodulerad strålterapi; rotationsterapi; intensitetsmodulerad protonterapi;

    Abstract : Treatment planning for radiation therapy inherently involves tradeoffs, such as between tumor control and normal tissue sparing, between time-efficiency and dose quality, and between nominal plan quality and robustness. The purpose of this thesis is to develop methods that can facilitate decision making related to such tradeoffs. READ MORE
