advances in monte carlo criticality calculations
Forrest Brown and Russell Mosteller
(MCNP development team, X-5, LANL)


This workshop will focus on recent advances in methods, codes, and data for Monte Carlo criticality calculations, including:
improvements to MCNP5 kcode calculations,
source entropy as a convergence diagnostic,
Weilandt acceleration,
stochastic geometry for HTGRs,
use of mesh tallies for reactor applications,
pre-ENDF/B-VII data,
doppler broadening,
material composition library,
etc.
