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.

NRC’s Inspector General issues report
Overall findings of a survey of Nuclear Regulatory Commission personnel indicate that while the NRC maintains a few strengths compared to external benchmarks, results have declined since 2015 in a number of areas, according to a recent report from the NRC’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
The survey was conducted in February 2020 by Willis Towers Watson, a global risk-management, insurance brokerage, and advisory firm that has partnered with the OIG for more than 20 years to assess the NRC’s safety culture and climate, as well as other aspects of employee experience.

Japanese fusion development program is being carried out as one of the national projects aming at the realization of fusion power in early 21st century. Major near term objective is to demonstrate reactor grade plasmas in tokamak confinement by JT-60. This project started in 1975, and since then a rapid progress has been made in every field of fusion research and development, supported by wide national concensus. In light of this progress and in expection of the achievement of scientific feasibility within a few years by the large tokamaks, JAEC expressed their intention in the newly revised Long-Term Program that Japan should proceed with the development of the next machine, the Fusion Experimental Reactor (FER), to achieve the self-ignition and to demonstrate the engineering feasibility of fusion reactor within this century.
