Title  Plutonium : How Nuclear Power???s Dream Fuel Became a Nightmare 
Author(s)  von Hippel, Frank;Takubo, Masafumi;Kang, Jungmin 
Publication  Singapore, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer Singapore, 2019. 
Description  XXI, 177 p. 51 illus., 44 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book provides a readable and thoughtprovoking analysis of the issues surrounding nuclear fuel reprocessing and fastneutron reactors, including discussion of resources, economics, radiological risk and resistance to nuclear proliferation. It describes the history and science behind reprocessing, and gives an overview of the status of reprocessing programmes around the world. It concludes that such programs should be discontinued. While nuclear power is seen by many as the only realistic solution to the carbon emission problem, some national nuclear establishments have been pursuing development and deployment of sodiumcooled plutonium breeder reactors, and plutonium recycling. Its proponents argue that this system would offer significant advantages relative to current light water reactor technology in terms of greater uranium utilization efficiency, and that separating out the longlived plutonium and other transuranics from spent fuel and fissioning them in fast reactors would greatly reduce the duration of the toxicity of radioactive waste. However, the history of efforts to deploy this system commercially in a number of countries over the last six decades has been one of economic and technical failure and, in some cases, was used to mask clandestine nuclear weapon development programs. Covering topics of significant public interest including nuclear safety, fuel storage, environmental impact and the spectre of nuclear terrorism, this book presents a comprehensive analysis of the issue for nuclear engineers, policy analysts, government officials and the general public.

Title  On the Edge of Magnetic Fusion Devices 
Author(s)  Krasheninnikov, Sergei;Smolyakov, Andrei;Kukushkin, Andrei 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2020. 
Description  XV, 261 p. 134 illus., 77 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This book reviews the current state of understanding concerning edge plasma, which bridges hot fusion plasma, with a temperature of roughly one million degrees Kelvin with plasmafacing materials, which have melting points of only a few thousand degrees Kelvin. In a fact, edge plasma is one of the keys to solution for harnessing fusion energy in magnetic fusion devices. The physics governing the processes at work in the edge plasma involves classical and anomalous transport of multispecies plasma, neutral gas dynamics, atomic physics effects, radiation transport, plasmamaterial interactions, and even the transport of plasma species within the plasmafacing materials. The book starts with simple physical models, then moves on to rigorous theoretical considerations and stateoftheart simulation tools that are capable of capturing the most important features of the edge plasma phenomena. The authors compare the conclusions arising from the theoretical and computational analysis with the available experimental data. They also discuss the remaining gaps in their models and make projections for phenomena related to edge plasma in magnetic fusion reactors

Title  Electric Potential in Toroidal Plasmas 
Author(s)  Melnikov, A.V 
Publication  Cham, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer International Publishing, 2019. 
Description  XV, 240 p. 202 illus., 194 illus. in color : online resource 
Abstract Note  This work introduces heavy ion beam probe diagnostics and presents an overview of its applications. The heavy ion beam probe is a unique tool for the measurement of potential in the plasma core in order to understand the role of the electric field in plasma confinement, including the mechanism of transition from low to high confinement regimes (L???H transition). This allows measurement of the steadystate profile of the plasma potential, and its use has been extended to include the measurement of quasimonochromatic and broadband oscillating components, the turbulentparticle flux and oscillations of the electron density and poloidal magnetic field. Special emphasis is placed on the study of Geodesic Acoustic Modes and Alfv??n Eigenmodes excited by energetic particles with experimental data sets. These experimental studies help to understand the link between broadband turbulent physics and quasicoherent oscillations in devices with a rather different magnetic configuration. The book also compares spontaneous and biased transitions from low to high confinement regimes on both classes of closed magnetic traps (tokamak and stellarator) and highlights the common features in the behavior of electric potential and turbulence of magnetized plasmas. A valuable resource for physicists, postgraduates and students specializing in plasma physics and controlled fusion

Title  A Monte Carlo Primer : Volume 2 
Author(s)  Dupree, Stephen A;Fraley, Stanley K 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 2004. 
Description  XII, 230 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  In Volume 1, A Monte Carlo Primer  A Practical Approach to Radiation Transport (the "Primer"), we attempt to provide a simple, convenient, and stepbystep approach to the development, basic understanding, and use of Monte Carlo methods in radiation transport. Using the PC, the Primer begins by developing basic Monte Carlo codes to solve simple transport problems, then introduces a teaching tool, the Probabilistic Framework Code (PFC), as a standard platform for assembling, testing, and executing the various Monte Carlo techniques that are presented. This second volume attempts to continue this approach by using both custom Monte Carlo codes and PFC to apply the concepts explained in the Primer to obtain solutions to the exercises given at the end of each chapter in the Primer. A relatively modest number of exercises is included in the Primer. Some ambiguity is left in the statement of many of the exercises because the intent is not to have the user write a particular, uniquely correct piece of coding that produces a specific number as a result, but rather to encourage the user to think about the problems and develop further the concepts explained in the text. Because in most cases there is more than one way to solve a Monte Carlo transport problem, we believe that working with the concepts illustrated by the exercises is more important than obtaining anyone particular solution

Title  A Monte Carlo Primer : A Practical Approach to Radiation Transport 
Author(s)  Dupree, Stephen A;Fraley, Stanley K 
Publication  New York, NY, 1. Imprint: Springer
2. Springer US, 2002. 
Description  XIII, 341 p : online resource 
Abstract Note  The mathematical technique of Monte Carlo, as applied to the transport of subatomic particles, has been described in numerous reports and books since its formal development in the 1940s. Most of these instructional efforts have been directed either at the mathematical basis of the technique or at its practical application as embodied in the several large, formal computer codes available for performing Monte Carlo transport calculations. This book attempts to fill what appears to be a gap in this Monte Carlo literature between the mathematics and the software. Thus, while the mathematical basis for Monte Carlo transport is covered in some detail, emphasis is placed on the application of the technique to the solution of practical radiation transport problems. This is done by using the PC as the basic teaching tool. This book assumes the reader has a knowledge of integral calculus, neutron transport theory, and Fortran programming. It also assumes the reader has available a PC with a Fortran compiler. Any PC of reasonable size should be adequate to reproduce the examples or solve the exercises contained herein. The authors believe it is important for the reader to execute these examples and exercises, and by doing so to become accomplished at preparing appropriate software for solving radiation transport problems using Monte Carlo. The step from the software described in this book to the use of production Monte Carlo codes should be straightforward
