Management science suggests the use of Monte Carlo techniques and probabilistic analysis to develop an idea of the scale of uncertainty inherent in a project, and the negative outcomes that can possibly materialise.
Professor Malcolm Mason, Cancer Research Wales' professor of clinical oncology, said: "Using Monte Carlo techniques may open the door to two major advances in radiotherapy treatment.
They cover dosimetry and the radiation biology of the brain, adjunct Monte Carlo techniques, and a homogeneous thermal neutron fluence in a prescribed volume.
An effort to fully model the photon detection region with Monte Carlo techniques is in progress.
This work utilizes Monte Carlo techniques to couple physical range-energy data to measurements of chords (straight-line paths) of bone and marrow cavities.
Stochastic pricing, on the other hand, uses Monte Carlo techniques to repeatedly simulate insured lifetimes from which a distribution of policy outcomes is created.
Monte Carlo techniques were used to test the appropriateness of statistical procedures when the underlying assumptions of these procedures are violated.
Methods for improved calculation of these effects are under development by Monte Carlo techniques or direct solution of the drift kinetic equation.
Among specific topics are the decomposition of the optical polarization components of the Crab pulsar and its nebula, the analysis of single pulses from radio pulsars at high observing frequencies, the population synthesis of normal radio and gamma-ray pulsars using Markov chain Monte Carlo techniques, symmetry energy effects in the neutron star properties, and radio timing observations of four gamma-ray pulsars at Nanshan.
