Shrinking Y-12 will facilitate cleanup, reduce costs, DOE says
A project to reduce by approximately half the high-security protected area at the Department of Energy’s Y-12 National Security Complex in Oak Ridge, Tenn., will avoid millions of dollars in costs and accelerate cleanup, the DOE’s Office of Environmental Management (EM) announced.

This is a text in nuclear reactor dynamics suitable for undergraduate seniors and graduate students in science and engineering.The topic of reactor dynamics, particularly in the form necessary to understand the computation that occurs both in control system analysis and safety analysis, is treated only incompletely in previous texts. One of this book's important features is that it bridges the gap between the viewpoints of the reactor physicist and the control engineer. It brings them together in such a way that the reader will be able to communicate in the language of either persuasion.
