Spectrum and variance of “pile noise” are discussed according to the formulation of S. O. Rice. It is shown that variance diverges as criticality is approached. A convergent quantity closely related to variance is introduced and observations on this quantity taken with ZPR-IV′, a light water-moderated highly enriched source reactor at Argonne.
