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 .

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].
