The role of modeling in designing new treatment protocols and instruments is discussed. A computer program for modeling laser-tissue interaction named Latis is described. Interactions are divided into the processes of laser propagation, thermal effects, material effects, and hydrodynamics. Full coupling of the processes is taken into consideration.(More)
Plasma mediated ablation of collagen gels and porcine cornea was studied at various laser pulse durations in the range of 1 ns–300 fs at 1053-nm wavelength. It was found that pulsed laser ablation of transparent and weakly absorbing gels is always mediated by plasma. On the other hand, ablation of strongly absorbing tissues is mediated by plasma in the(More)
We introduce a new open-source toolkit for the well-tie or wavelet extraction problem of estimating seismic wavelets from seismic data, time-to-depth information, and well-log suites. The wavelet extraction model is formulated as a Bayesian inverse problem, and the software will simultaneously estimate wavelet coefficients, other parameters associated with(More)
We introduce a new open-source toolkit for model-based Bayesian seismic inversion called Delivery. The prior model in Delivery is a trace–local layer stack, with rock physics information taken from log analysis and layer times initialised from picks. We allow for uncertainty in both the fluid type and saturation in reservoir layers: variation in seismic(More)
We introduce a new open-source program for transforming inversion data from the open-source Delivery seismic inversion software to industry-standard cornerpoint grid formats suitable for reservoir modelling and flow simulations. The seismic inversion data produced by Delivery is an array of trace-local stochastic samples from a Bayesian posterior(More)
Very weakly bound electron-ion pairs in a strong magnetic field are called guiding center drift atoms, since the electron dynamics can be treated by guiding center drift theory. Over a wide range of weak binding, the coupled electron-ion dynamics for these systems is integrable. This paper discusses the dynamics, including the important cross magnetic field(More)
Mainstream object-oriented languages such as Java and C#, through the use of object-oriented abstractions and managed runtimes (virtual machines), have significantly improved productivity and portability in multiple application domains. However, despite many attempts in the past, the effect of these improvements on high-performance numeric computations has(More)
