Within European Partitioning & Transmutation research programs, infrastructures specifically dedicated to the study of fundamental reactor physics and engineering parameters of future fast-neutron-based reactors are very important, being some of thes...

The adjoint equation was introduced in the early days of neutron transport and its solution, the neutron importance, has been used for several applications in neutronics. The work presents at first a critical review of the adjoint neutron transport e...

Of the methods available by which to integrate the neutron and delayed neutron precursor balance equations in time, at present the quasi-static methods are among the most practical and favourable. However, the correct application of the quasi-static ...

Solving the adjoint linear transport equation by Monte Carlo methods can be convenient for applications emerging in radiation shielding, where the detector is typically small (in terms of probability of detecting a signal). In this work we compare a ...

This paper is the second part of an investigation on the use of the spectral element method (SEM) to solve neutron transport problems in the AN approximation. Part I of the study contained a description of the SEM variational approach of the AN equat...
