This book allows the reader to understand the fundamentals of
polarization phenomena in a general spin system, showing the polarizations to be
indispensable information source of spin-dependent interactions. Topics covered includes: Polarization,
Alignment and Orientation, Spin Observables by Density Matrix, Spin Observables
in Nuclear Reactions, Optical Potential and Elastic Scattering of Protons,
Polarization in Resonance Reaction, Three Nucleon Force and Polarization
Phenomena in a Three Nucleon System .

This book presents
a comprehensive review of studies in nuclear reactors technology from authors
across the globe. Topics discussed in this compilation include: thermal
hydraulic investigation of TRIGA type research reactor, materials testing
reactor and high temperature gas-cooled reactor, decay heat in reactors and
spent-fuel pools, present status of two-phase flow studies in reactor
components, two-phase flow coolant behavior in boiling water reactors under
earthquake condition, simulation of nuclear reactors core, fuel life control in
light-water reactors, methods for monitoring and controlling power in nuclear
reactors, structural materials modeling for the next generation of nuclear
reactors, application of the results of finite group theory in reactor physics,
and the usability of vermiculite as a shield for nuclear reactor.
The purpose of
this guide is to describe in complete detail a FORTRAN code named Program SCAT 4
written by the UCLA group in order to analyze elastic scattering of various
particle. Topics covered includes: Mathematical Description, Program
Description, Description of Input Data, Symbolic Listing of the Program.
A. Melkanoff, David S. Saxon, John S. Nodvik and David G. Cantor
book gives an elementary but coherent account of that branch of physics involved
in the study and design of nuclear reactors at a standard presentation judged to
be suitable for advanced undergraduate students.
