3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

It solves reactor kinetic equations. Equations of variables defining feedback may be non- linear. The external reactivity may be expressed in terms of a linear combination of time-dependent functions such as step- functions, ramps, sine-functions or exponentials. Cooling coefficients are allowed to vary discontinuously in time in order to simulate pump accidents.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

The differential equations are integrated using the Lie-series method.
