This “Nuclear Reactor Physics” 3rd Edition, completely revised of the textbook retains the proven concept of complete and balanced coverage of the topic.
The 1st part looks at basic reactor physics, including, but not limited to nuclear reactions,reactor dynamics, diffusion theory, fuel burnup and reactor safety. The 2nd part then deals with such physically and mathematically more advanced topics as resonance absorption, neutron transport theory, and neutron thermalization. For ease of reference, the detailed appendices contain useful mathematical formulas, nuclear data, an overview of special functions as well as an introduction to matrix algebra and Laplace transforms.
With its focus on conveying the in-depth knowledge needed by advanced students and professional nuclear engineers, this textbook is ideal for use in numerous courses, including nuclear reactor dynamics and stability, neutron transport theory, nuclear reactor physics, advanced nuclear reactor physics, nand nuclear reactor fuel cycle physics.
