Introduces fundamental properties of the neutron. Covers reactions induced by neutrons, nuclear fission, slowing down of neutrons in infinite media, diffusion theory, the few-group approximation, point kinetics, and fission-product poisoning. Emphasizes the nuclear physics bases of reactor design and its relationship to reactor engineering problems.

This class has 18.03, 22.01, and 22.06 as prerequisites.

22.05 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by B. Forget.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 24-115.
