Reactor Physics studies the neutron-induced nuclear reactions that take place in a nuclear reactor, the most important of which is the fission reaction. Reactor physics is concerned not only with qualitative aspects of such reactions, but also with quantitative aspects, namely predicting the fission reaction rate, and thus the heat-generation rate, in a nuclear reactor. The design of nuclear reactors, as well as that of their control and safety systems, relies heavily on Reactor Physics.Radiation Physics is the study of interaction of radiation with matter and its applications to radiation protection, industry and medicine. Radiation Physics finds applications in industrial and medical radiography and in radiotherapy.

Modelling and Simulation

Modelling is concerned with developing mathematical models and equations that describe physical and technological processes and with solving such equations, usually by relying on computational algorithms implemented in digital-computer codes (programs).Simulation is concerned with applying models and computer codes to predicting the behaviour of complex natural or technological systems.
