This monograph provides useful information for the body of engineers, scientists, and students who wish to use reactivity measurements as a tool for 1) deriving information about the mechanism of interaction of neutrons with various materials introduced into a nuclear reactor, 2) determining certain properties, e.g., cross sections, of the materials, and 3) determining characteristics of the reactor.

This most complete and in-depth treatment of small-sample reactivity measurements in both thermal and fast reactor systems is based upon fundamentals as well as the inclusion of many practical applications and examples, making the book useful to experts as well as those having little familiarity with this field.
