Predicting electronic stopping powers using stacking ensemble machine learning method

  title={Predicting electronic stopping powers using stacking ensemble machine learning method},
  author={Fatemeh Akbari and Somayeh Taghizadeh and Diana Shvydka and Nicholas Niven Sperling and E. Ishmael Parsai},
Background: Accurate electronic stopping power data is crucial for calculations of radiation-induced effects in a wide range of applications, from dosimetry and radiotherapy to particle physics. The data is dependent on the parameters of both the incident charged particle and the stopping medium. The existent Bethe theory can be used to calculate the stopping power of high-energy ions, but fails at lower energies, leaving incomplete and even contradictory experimental data, often expanded…

Ensemble Machine Learning: Methods and Applications

Responding to a shortage of literature dedicated to ensemble learning, this volume offers comprehensive coverage of state-of-the-art ensemble learning techniques, including the random forest skeleton tracking algorithm in the Xbox Kinect sensor, which bypasses the need for game controllers.

Machine learning for radiation outcome modeling and prediction.

The challenges in radiotherapy outcome prediction are discussed, and it is suggested to improve radiation outcome modeling by developing appropriate machine learning approaches where both accuracy and interpretability are taken into account.

A review of feature selection methods on synthetic data

Several synthetic datasets are employed for this purpose, aiming at reviewing the performance of feature selection methods in the presence of a crescent number or irrelevant features, noise in the data, redundancy and interaction between attributes, as well as a small ratio between number of samples and number of features.
