A Monte Carlo Primer: A Practical Approach to Radiation Transport

By Stephen A. Dupree, Stanley K. Fraley

The mathematical means of Monte Carlo, as utilized to the shipping of sub-atomic debris, has been defined in different stories and books considering the fact that its formal improvement within the Forties. almost all these educational efforts were directed both on the mathematical foundation of the approach or at its sensible program as embodied within the numerous huge, formal computing device codes on hand for appearing Monte Carlo delivery calculations. This publication makes an attempt to fill what seems to be a niche during this Monte Carlo literature among the math and the software program. hence, whereas the mathematical foundation for Monte Carlo shipping is roofed in a few aspect, emphasis is put on the appliance of the strategy to the answer of functional radiation delivery difficulties. this is often performed by utilizing the computer because the uncomplicated educating instrument. This ebook assumes the reader has a data of critical calculus, neutron shipping thought, and Fortran programming. It additionally assumes the reader has on hand a laptop with a Fortran compiler. Any laptop of moderate dimension will be sufficient to breed the examples or remedy the routines contained herein. The authors think it will be important for the reader to execute those examples and workouts, and through doing with the intention to develop into finished at getting ready acceptable software program for fixing radiation shipping difficulties utilizing Monte Carlo. The step from the software program defined during this e-book to using creation Monte Carlo codes could be uncomplicated.
