Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


This book is derived from classroom notes which were prepared for three courses offered by the Department of Nuclear Engineering at New York University and the polytechnic Institute of New York. These are a one-year introductory course in nuclear engineering (Chapters 1-8), a one-term course in radiation protection (Chapters 9 and 10), and a one-term course in reactor licensing, safety and the environment (Chapter 11). These courses are offered to juniors and seniors in the Department's undergraduate program and to beginning graduate students who have not had previous training in nuclear engineering.
