  1. 21. Development of Monte Carlo track structure simulations for protons and carbon ions in water

    Author : Thiansin Liamsuwan; Hooshang Nikjoo; Shuzo Uehara; David Liljequist; Michael Dingfelder; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Radiation track structure; Monte Carlo simulations; interaction cross sections; classical trajectory Monte Carlo CTMC method; microdosimetry; ion beams; medicinsk strålningsfysik; Medical Radiation Physics;

    Abstract : The goal of radiation therapy is to eradicate tumour cells while minimising radiation dose to healthy tissues. Ions including protons and carbon ions have gained increasing interest for cancer treatment. READ MORE

  2. 22. Computational Aspects of Lévy-Driven SPDE Approximations

    Author : Andreas Petersson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; multilevel Monte Carlo; numerical approximation of stochastic differential equations; multiplicative noise; Lévy processes; finite element method; variance redons; Monte Carlo; weak convergence; Lévy processes;

    Abstract : In order to simulate solutions to stochastic partial differential equations (SPDE) they must be approximated in space and time. In this thesis such fully discrete approximations are considered, with an emphasis on finite element methods combined with rational semigroup approximations. There are several notions of the error resulting from this. READ MORE

  3. 23. Machine learning using approximate inference : Variational and sequential Monte Carlo methods

    Author : Christian Andersson Naesseth; Thomas Schön; Fredrik Lindsten; Iain Murray; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Automatic decision making and pattern recognition under uncertainty are difficult tasks that are ubiquitous in our everyday life. The systems we design, and technology we develop, requires us to coherently represent and work with uncertainty in data. READ MORE

  4. 24. Variance reduction methods for numerical solution of plasma kinetic diffusion

    Author : Lars Josef Höök; Torbjörn Hellsten; Thomas Johnson; Lars-Göran Ericsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; variance reduction; Monte Carlo; quasi-Monte Carlo; kinetic diffusion; stochastic differential equation;

    Abstract : Performing detailed simulations of plasma kinetic diffusion is a challenging task and currently requires the largest computational facilities in the world. The reason for this is that, the physics in a confined heated plasma occur on a broad range of temporal and spatial scales. READ MORE

  5. 25. Approximating Stochastic Partial Differential Equations with Finite Elements: Computation and Analysis

    Author : Andreas Petersson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Lévy process; Lyapunov equation; white noise; finite element method; multilevel Monte Carlo; Monte Carlo; multiplicative noise; asymptotic mean square stability; stochastic heat equation; covariance operator; weak convergence; generalized Wiener process; numerical approximation; stochastic wave equation; Stochastic partial differential equations;

    Abstract : Stochastic partial differential equations (SPDE) must be approximated in space and time to allow for the simulation of their solutions. In this thesis fully discrete approximations of such equations are considered, with an emphasis on finite element methods combined with rational semigroup approximations. READ MORE
