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.

U.S. Power Reactor Performance, 2005–2007, is a major expansion of the capacity factor survey article published in the May 2008 issue of Nuclear News. There are more than 150 charts tracing the history of each operating power reactor, multireactor plant, and multiplant licensee, through their three-year DER net capacity factors. There are also 20 charts covering the performance histories of various groups of reactors (boiling water reactors, pressurized water reactors, etc.), five tables comparing factors in 2005–2007, and three tables comparing factors from 1963–1965 through 2005–2007. Also included are the May 2008 Nuclear News article and an introduction on the derivation of the data used in the book.
