Abstract:

The Monte Carlo method for the solution of complicated problems involving nuclear radiation is presented. This method has been used chiefly when solution by other means was prohibitively complicated. The solution to a number of problems involving the transport of 14 Mev neutrons in air is given. It should be useful as a guide for those offices and research organizations that have copies of the RAND Monte Carlo neutron transport code.
