Abstract : Three neutron transport studies in uniform nitrogen have been made using the correlated sampling, Monte Carlo, transport code SAMCEP. They are (1) the scale check problem set, (2) the elastic angular distribution problem set, and (3) the Thomason Perturbation Problem Set. The calculated differences in the radiation field due to the various cross section perturbations either agreed with other calculations where comparison was possible or were self-consistent. An evaluation of the fluence-difference statistic showed that its improvement was appreciable for realistic cross section perturbations. (Author)
