Abstract:
Introduction: Stereotactic Radiosurgery is the delivery of a large, highly focused radiation dose to well defined targets in the brain. This thesis explores linac-based inverse planning algorithms that can be implemented to improve the dosimetric and delivery performance of Volumetric ModulatedArc Therapy treatments for these indications.

Methods: In this work, algorithms for Couch-Gantry, and Collimator-Gantry trajectory optimization were developed. Treatment plans calculated with

Abstract:
We study the noncommutative geometry associated to matrices of N quantum dots in the matrix models. The earlier work established a surface embedded in flat R^3 from three Hermitian matrices. We construct coherent states corresponding to points in the emergent geometry and find the original matrices determine not only shape of the emergent surface, but also a unique Poisson structure. We prove that commutators of matrix operators correspond to Poisson brackets. Through our construction, we can realize arbitrary noncommutative membranes embedded in R^3.

Abstract:
In this thesis, we investigate the many-body “collective” behavior of particles dressed by interactions, baths excitations, and disorder.
