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.

Survey: Strong overall support in U.S. for nuclear, but with concerns
Results of the American Climate Perspectives Survey 2022 conducted by the climate-focused organization ecoAmerica suggest that the overall national support for research into advanced nuclear energy and for nuclear energy in general are continuing five-year upward trends. However, according to the survey, fewer than half of women responding to the survey support nuclear power. In addition, public concerns about nuclear-related waste disposal, health and safety, and weaponization remain high.

Rigorous tests of the Monte Carlo transport code MCNP have been performed by measuring the efficiency of a 6Li-glass moderating neutron detector using Lucite as the moderator relative to the efficiency of the detector using mineral oil as the moderator, and comparing this with the MCNP predicted value. The tests were done using both 252Cf fission-source neutrons and 1.2-MeV neutrons produced by a Van de Graaff accelerator.
