Abstract : Reprint of Applied Mathematics Laboratory technical report 15 dated Feb 1956. Two representative projects involving nuclear reactor calculations performed on electronic computers are discussed. The first, leading to the Cuthill code, is based on the diffusion theory and the second is based on the more refined transport theory. The mathematical procedures underlying these approaches to the solution of problems in reactor design are described in detail. (Author)
