In science:

Some of quite current interest concern the transmutation of long-lived radioactive waste into shorter-lived products using accelerator-driven systems (ADS) and in predicting dosimetries for patients in radiation therapy.
A simple functional form for proton-${}^{208}$Pb total reaction cross sections
In radiation therapy and radiation protection, dosimetry relies on neutron cross sections.
Simple functional forms for total cross sections from neutron-nucleus collisions
Following the case which has already been studied and used in practice as a model in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment planning; see [11, 15], a prototypical Split Inverse Problem (SIP) concerns a model in which there are two spaces X and Y and there is given a bounded linear operator A : X → Y .
Algorithms for the Split Variational Inequality Problem
This was used for solving an inverse problem in radiation therapy treatment planning in .
Algorithms for the Split Variational Inequality Problem
Originally introduced in Censor and Elfving , it was later used in the area of intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) treatment planning; see [15, 11].

Such as in radioactive waste management, in radiation therapy and radiation protection for patients and in many other fields.
Predicting total and total reaction cross sections using a simple functional form
As well, proton-nucleus (p-A) cross section values at energies to 300 MeV or more are needed not only to specify important quantities of relevance to proton radiation therapy , but also as they are key information in assessing radiation protection for patients.

These codes are in general valuable in predicting radiation fields of ions in tissues and are in particular useful in hadron therapy for the simulation of ion transport.
Analytical expressions for stopping-power ratios relevant for accurate dosimetry in particle therapy
Initial studies on STPRs relevant for dosimetry in radiation therapy with ions heavier than protons were performed without Monte Carlo calculations ignoring the influence of the secondary particle spectrum (e.g. [15–17] as presented in TRS-398 ).

Furthermore, it was recently argued that ions heavier than carbon may play an important role in the near future concerning the radiation therapy of radio-resistent tumors .

Consequently, a large variety of ion species, namely, H, He, Li, C, N, O, Ne, Si, and Ar are considered here — all accessable either for clinical radiation therapy (up till O and Ne at HIT and NIRS, respectively) or for in vitro radiobiology experiments.
