    Optimization of Radiotherapy Plan under Uncertainty

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Amir, Atabeiki (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    As a method of cancer treatment or improvement of cancer-related complications, external radiation therapy is prescribed by physicians, in case of detection of a tumor in a region of patient’s body. Over time, various techniques have been developed for external beam radiation therapy. Among which, Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), due to its ability to adjust the intensity of radiation beams, has a higher capacity to generate appropriate dose distribution based on tumor size and volume and it is one of the most widely used techniques in cancer treatment centers.The core process in treatment planning is using appropriate computer algorithms which results in posing enough damage to...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Firooze, Saeed (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    The aim of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is to provide fast medical care and to transport patients to hospitals at the earliest possible time, so as to reduce injury and fatality rate. Healthcare managers try to improve healthcare systems by reducing the response time to demands. In this thesis, we present mathematical models for the problem of location and relocation of emergency vehicles after the end of their service time or after they have returned to a hospital. We believe that implementing these models can help managers improve the performance of emergency medical services. In the first part of this study, we present a two-level deterministic optimization model considering demand... 

    Proposing a Solution Algorithm for Operating Room Scheduling Problem Using Open Scheduling and Elective Patient Strategy

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Iranzad, Reza (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    Operating rooms have always been the most expensive and also the most profitable section in hospitals which include approximately one third of cost and two third of income. The management always wants to decrease the cost of hospitals. On the other hand, usually this goal stands against other goals such as patient’s satisfaction. So the manager should make a balance between these goals. In this research, we will propose an integer programming model for operating room scheduling problem without uncertainty for elective patients. In order to make the model more realistic, we want to make connection between operating room theatre and intensive care units. Also, we will consider desirable...

    Recently, data scientists have been paying much attention to sports. Many researches have been done in this field, using data mining and machine learning techniques. The following research aims to predict the results of football matches, which consists of two general approaches. For the first and second approaches, we used video game data and match statistics, respectively. In both approaches, it was tried to predict not only the final result (win, draw, or loss) but also the final goal difference. In the first approach, the home team victory was predicted by 73% accuracy, the draw by 75.4%, and the home team defeat by 73.7%. Nevertheless, in the second approach, the home team victory was...

    Scheduling the Shifts of Physicians During Covid-19 Pandemic

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Dehghani, Saeed (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    People's lives have been affected by the spread of the Covid-19 virus. Due to the high infectivity, governments have screened people, imposed curfews, mandated the use of masks, and so on to reduce the rate of transmission of the disease among people. Meanwhile, infected people are getting treatments: people who are slightly affected are quarantined at home, and those who are heavily affected are treated in hospitals. Hence there is an excessive increase in the hospital workload. On the one hand, this increased workload leads to physical fatigue and, on the other hand, to psychological problems, stress, etc. for the healthcare professionals. Therefore, it is very important to take care of...

    Predicting Football Match Results by Machine Learning Methods

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Behradfar, Mohsen (Author) ; Rafiee, Majid (Supervisor)
    Nowadays, electrical energy is one of the crucial requirements in human beings’ lives. Since the majority of the world’s energy is met by fossil fuel, the problems such as global warming, the reduction of fossil fuel resources, and unpredictable oscillation of the prices of such fuels have led to a serious crisis for the people of the world. Furthermore, due to the increasing energy demand, the economic development of most countries has a strong correlation with fossil fuel prices. The abovementioned problems have made a lot of countries take alternative policies in terms of generating energy, one of which is using renewable energy resources. This approach is reported to be clean and...
