3. DESCRIPTION OF PROGRAM OR FUNCTION

The MCART code solves, using the method of the characteristics and three different numerical algorithms, the time dependent neutron transport equation, with explicit representation of delayed neutrons, in a bi-dimensional spatial domain for an arbitrary number of energy groups.

4. METHODS

MCART uses the method of the characteristics, and three different numerical algorithms are used to solve the time dependent neutron transport equation with explicit representation of the delayed neutrons. The code uses dynamic memory allocation and therefore only the RAM memory limit sets the maximum number of energy groups. The code contains OPENMP4 and OPENGL5 instructions for parallel computing and plotting, respectively.
