X-Computational Physics Division, Los Alamos National Laboratory, P.O. Box 1663, Los Alamos, NM 87545
The method for performing adjoint-weighted tallies in MCNP is discussed along with the applications of point kinetics, perturbation theory, and nuclear data sensitivities. Future applications and extensions such as localized adjoint-weighted fluxes, more sophisticated kinetics models, higher-order perturbation theory, and temperature coefficients.
Key words: MCNP / kinetics / perturbation / sensitivity
