Outline of lecture
To facilitate the understanding on the nuclear reactors, explanatory lectures are given on the neutron behavior and fission reactions in English.
Purpose of lecture
This class aims the understanding of fundamental theory of nuclear fission chain by neutrons and nuclear transmutations, which is a fundamental principal of nuclear reactors.
