Multigroup constants for deterministic methods that preserve the time-dependent physics of the neutron transport equations are derived. Alternative multigroup constant weighting spectra are discussed: (1) the fundamental k-eigenfunction, (2) the fundamental α-eigenfunction, and (3) a composite of several α-modes. To generate the fundamental α-eigenfunction for calculating the multigroup constants, a static fundamental α-eigenvalue method is implemented into the open source Monte Carlo code OpenMC. Several static and kinetic problems are devised to verify the implementations and to investigate the relative performance of the alternative multigroup constant weighting spectra. Results emphasize that as a multigroup constant weighting spectrum, the fundamental α-eigenfunction offers physical characteristics that make it advantageous (in producing accurate solutions) over the typically used fundamental k-eigenfunction.
