ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Mathematics & Computation
Division members promote the advancement of mathematical and computational methods for solving problems arising in all disciplines encompassed by the Society. They place particular emphasis on numerical techniques for efficient computer applications to aid in the dissemination, integration, and proper use of computer codes, including preparation of computational benchmark and development of standards for computing practices, and to encourage the development on new computer codes and broaden their use.

The Civil Nuclear Credit Program: An overview
Officially established on November 15, 2021, with the signing of the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act—aka the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, or BIL—the Department of Energy’s Civil Nuclear Credit Program was designed to give owners/operators of commercial U.S. reactors the opportunity to apply for certification and competitively bid on credits to help support the continued operation of economically troubled units. Finally, the federal government, and not just certain farsighted state governments, would recognize nuclear energy for its important grid reliability and decarbonization attributes.
2022 International High-Level Radioactive Waste Management Conference Speaker
Dr. Robert Ledoux currently serves as a Program Director at the Advanced Research Projects Agency—Energy. His areas of interest include the intersection of nuclear physics and non-proliferation, energy production, and transportation. He is the program director of the ARPA-E ONWARDS program, which aims to reduce the disposal impact of advanced reactor waste.
Prior to joining ARPA-E, Dr. Ledoux served as the Founder, President, and CEO of Passport Systems, a technology company in non-intrusive cargo inspection. At Passport Systems Dr. Ledoux co-invented powerful new technologies with the US Department of Homeland Security Domestic Nuclear Detection Office to aid in the non-intrusive inspection of cargo and co-authored over 20 US and international patents. Prior to founding Passport Systems, he served as Vice President of Pyramid Technical Consultants, developing hardware and software for the control of magnetic scanning systems and accelerator control used in semiconductor manufacturing equipment. Previously as an Associate Professor of Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, he studied high-energy nuclear interactions in search of new phases of hadronic matter.
