Application of the two-group - one-region and two-region - one-group Feynman-alpha formulas in safeguards and accelerator-driven system (ADS)
Paper in proceedings, 2013

The applicability of the two-group (one-region) and two-region (one-group) Feynman-alpha (variance to mean) formulas was assessed with regards to applications in safeguards and accelerator-driven system (ADS) considered as an option for transmutation of nuclear wastes. Since two-group calculations with the master equation technique when both thermal and fast fissions are included, have not been performed earlier, investigation of this problem has a methodological value of its own. The potential applications of the two-group - one-region and two-region - one-group Feynman-alpha approaches in nuclear safeguards were evaluated and compared to the results of Monte-Carlo simulations.
