This book introduces students, reactor physicists, and nuclear engineers to the literature and state-of-the-art of a subject of vital importance as the nuclear community becomes increasingly involved in fast reactor development. Calculation methods for reactivity coefficients are described, and the important factors affecting their magnitudes are analyzed. With reactivity coefficients as parameters, methods and typical results of fast reactor transient analyses are then examined, discussing effects on design and safety.
