Modelling of radiative transfer by the Monte Carlo method and solving the inverse problem based on a genetic algorithm according to experimental results of aerosol sensing on short paths using a femtosecond laser source
Abstract
We consider the algorithms that implement a broadband ('multiwave') radiative transfer with allowance for multiple (aerosol) scattering and absorption by main atmospheric gases. In the spectral range of 0.6 – 1 μm, a closed numerical simulation of modifications of the supercontinuum component of a probing femtosecond pulse is performed. In the framework of the algorithms for solving the inverse atmosphericoptics problems with the help of a genetic algorithm, we give an interpretation of the experimental backscattered spectrum of the supercontinuum. An adequate reconstruction of the distribution mode for the particles of artificial aerosol with the narrowmodal distributions in a size range of 0.5 – 2 mm and a step of 0.5 mm is obtained.

The inverse problems arise in almost all fields of science where the realworld parameters are extracted from a set of measured data. The geosteering inversion plays an essential role in the accurate prediction of oncoming strata as well as a reliable guidance to adjust the borehole position on the fly to reach one or more geological targets. This mathematical treatment is not easy to solve, which requires finding an optimum solution among a large solution space, especially when the problem is nonlinear and nonconvex. Nowadays, a new generation of loggingwhiledrilling (LWD) tools has emerged on the market. The socalled azimuthalmore »

A HighOrder LowOrder Algorithm with Exponentially Convergent Monte Carlo for Thermal Radiative Transfer
In this paper, we have implemented a new highorder loworder (HOLO) algorithm for solving thermal radiative transfer problems. The loworder (LO) system is based on the spatial and angular moments of the transport equation and a lineardiscontinuous finiteelement spatial representation, producing equations similar to the standard S _{2} equations. The LO solver is fully implicit in time and efficiently resolves the nonlinear temperature dependence at each time step. The highorder (HO) solver utilizes exponentially convergent Monte Carlo (ECMC) to give a globally accurate solution for the angular intensity to a fixedsource pureabsorber transport problem. This global solution is used tomore » 
A genetic algorithm based inverse band structure method for semiconductor alloys
We present an efficient and accurate method for searching for atomic configurations with target band structure properties. Our approach to this inverse problem is to search the atomic configuration space by repeatedly applying a forward solver, guiding the search toward the optimal configuration using a genetic algorithm. For the forward solver, we relax the atomic positions, then solve the Schroedinger equation using a fast empirical pseudopotential method. We employ a hierarchical parallelism for the combined forward solver and genetic algorithm. This enables the optimization process to run on many more processors than would otherwise be possible. We have optimized AlGaAsmore » 
Method of describing the neutron cross sections in the resonant energy range on solving neutrontransfer problems by the Monte Carlo method
A method for computing the cross sections of neutron reactions and solving neutron transport theory using the Monte Carlo method is proposed in which cross sections are derived from a gamma distribution factor. This method is compared with and verified against a standard subgroup method in the following way. Neutrons are directed perpendicularly at a homogeneous iron barrier. The flux density of reflected radiation and radiation transmitted through the barrier in the resonant energy region are estimated as recalculated per single source neutron. It is assumed that the results obtained using the subgroup theory for neutron transport should be takenmore »
