3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

The programme builds up a complete nuclear power programme and, among other things, matches plutonium produced within the programme to that required within it. The output includes the variation of load factor with time for each  type of station and the present worth of the total expenditure.
Also included are the minimum selling prices of any specified amounts of plutonium sold at any specified times.
