Course Outline
This course is designed to cover the particle transport solution theory, numerical algorithms, and computational methods for continuous, one-group, multi-group neutron and radiation transport phenomena. Major subjects are : singular eigenfunction expansion, Green's function, spherical harmonics, discrete ordinates, integral transport, even-parity transport, method of characteristics, Boltzmann-Fokker-Planck transport methods for analysis of the transport phenomena of various quantum particles (neutrons, photons, electrons, positrons, protons, etc), that can be applied to the design of various types of nuclear reactors, radiation shielding facilities, and analysis of radiation/energy deposition profiles in systems such as nuclear fusion reactors, accelerators, nuclear bio-medical equipment, semiconductor/nano quantum systems, and nuclear imaging problems in nuclear prospecting, nuclear assay, and computed tomography.
