# Regarding computer project report

The report (hard copy only) should have following:

1. The numerical scheme for your geometry (slab, sphere or cylinder) (can be
handwritten)

2. The plots for flux for source problem (Problem 1)(as given in the computer
project).

3. Analytical formula and calculation for k-value for one region problem. (can
be hand wriiten)

4. Table for k-values for one region problem (analytical and numerical with
different grid sizes)

5. Normalized plots for flux for criticality problem for one region problem (i.e.
peak value should be 1) . This can be done by dividing the flux you obtained by
max(phi) before plotting. Note there is a max function in matlab.

6. Write the analytical equation for finding k for two-region problem. This is a
transcendental equation and you have to solve this equation numerically to
get the value of k for this case. Also, this equation has multiple roots; you
need only the first root. You can use FindRoot function in Mathematica or may
use any other software.

7. Repeat 2, 4 and 5 for two-region problem.

Policy regarding copying in computer projects

Dear Students,

The computer projects are take home and discussions among the
students is allowed (and encouraged). However you are expected to write your
own code and submit your own report. If a group of students submit same (or
similar beyond a certain degree) report, marks obtained will be equally
distributed among them.
