Results for our liquid-metal fast breeder reactor benchmark problem obtained by several diffusion computer programs for two- and three-dimensional reactor models showed unexplained behavior or discrepancies. With the help of additional calculations and comparisons, it was possible to improve some of the computer programs. Most of the original calculations have been repeated (and, in addition, some new calculations have been performed), and the revised results of the comparison are presented in this Note.
