    language = {english},
    abstract = {In the previous phase of the SEE-GRID project, we implemented the "SEE++ to Grid Bridge", via which normal SEE++ clients are able to access and exploit the computational power of the Austrian Grid. This document discusses the theory and the design of a new functionality of the SEE-GRID system called pathology fitting and described its two simple parallelized versions. SEE-GRID is based on the SEE++ software for the biomechanical simulation of the human eye. SEE++ was developed in the SEE-KID project by the Upper Austrian Research and the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences. SEE++ consists of a client component for user interaction and of a server component that runs various computations. The pathology fitting algorithm in SEE-GRID uses the result data of the medical examination Hess-Lancastar Test as input and it is able to determine (approximately) the pathological cause of strabismus in case of a patient. This paper addresses the following issues: How the sequential pathology fitting algorithm works. How the sequential pathology fitting can be improved by using the results of the previous phase of the SEE-GRID project. How the pathology fitter can be parallelized. At the end of this paper, we summarise our first experiences with the pathology fitting and make a plan for the further developments. },
