Consultant recommends subsidies for Exelon plants
A research and consulting firm hired by Illinois governor J. B. Pritzker’s administration to scrutinize the financial fitness of Exelon’s Byron and Dresden nuclear plants approves of limited state subsidies for the facilities, according to a redacted version of the firm’s report made available yesterday.

Ray analysis techniques are standard for computing the uncollided component of a detector response to radiation. In this paper, uncollided adjoint flux integrals and forward-adjoint inner product integrals in volumes and on surfaces are derived for general geometries. In numerical test problems using a one-dimensional sphere and a two-dimensional (r-z) cylinder, deterministic and stochastic evaluations of the integrals yielded the same results. A semianalytic benchmark for the adjoint flux integral on a cylindrical surface is also used.
