Cellular radiosensitivity parameters of the track structure theory of Katz and co-workers are evaluated from a sum of squares minimizing computer program for nonlinear models. Based on these observations, suggestions are presented for efficient experiment design for the determination of these parameters from track-segment bombardments of high LET radiations.
An ad hoc model of energetic heavy ion beams, including secondary and tertiary particles, has been constructed for predicting radiobiological experiments. While the beam model is relatively primitive, it yields depth-dose and depth-radiobiological calculations in good agreement with experiment upstream of the Bragg peak. Beyond the peak, the model is(More)
