Optimization and Decision Making in Radiological Protection

Abstract - The Task Group of Committee 4 was originally established to produce a report on methods of optimizing radiological protection other than cost benefit analysis. As the work of the Task Group progressed, however, it became clear that it would be more useful to produce a report that considered all aspects of optimization, including cost benefit. This report therefore considers various techniques and their application to problems at different levels of complexity.
