- ItemADL1 - an atomic data library for use in computing the behaviour of plasma devices including fusion reactors(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1981-05) Clancy, BE; Cook, JL; Rose, EK
Show more A data library with self-descriptive format is presented. This library provides on a fixed temperature grid reaction rate coefficients effective degree of ionisation and data for line radiation power emission for 59 ion or neutral species. Data are presented for neutral and ionised atoms of the hydrogen isotopes and for 49 'impurity' ion species ranging from helium-3 and -4 to uranium. Data origins are also discussed.Show more - ItemComparison of resonance absorption theory used in the codes GYMEA and PEAS and evaluation of residual background reaction rates(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1966-12) Cook, JL; Wall, AL
Show more Details of the resonance theory used in the code GYMEA are described and compared with exact solutions for resonance's in Th232, U235, and Pu240. The relative merits of two methods for including background cross sections are evaluated, by an exhaustive study of the reaction rates across the resonance's. It was found that the analytical procedure for calculating resonance reaction rates leads to tolerable errors in reactor physics calculations. The resonance adjusted calculations emerged as the most accurate method for computing the fine structure of the reaction rates across a resonance.Show more - ItemCompound nucleus formulation of reaction matrix theory(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1972-02) Cook, JL; Bertram, WK
Show more It is shown that multilevel resonance parameters for each element of the reaction matrix cannot be determined from available data. However, additional constraints may be introduced without affecting agreement with experiment. The Bohr compound nucleus hypothesis is applied to the T-matrix and it is found, as in Newton's model, that the channel matrix can be inverted analytically to provide simple formulae for cross sections, for both the real Wigner-Eisenbud reaction matrix and Moldauer's complex reaction matrix. Wigner-Eisenbud theory leads directly to Newton's strong correlation model and its unacceptable consequences. Moldauer's theory does not and can explain cross section behaviour adequately while being consistent with Bohr's hypothesis. Cross sections can be written as a sum of single level contributions, as in the Adler-Adler formulation. Finally, Moldauer's statistical theory is shown to be applicable, and expressions are derived fr the averaged cross sections as functions of the complex Moldauer resonance parameters.Show more - ItemData preparation and bibliography for the Gymea Library NDXC(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1966-09) Cook, JL

Show more It is shown that the effect of missing small fission widths in the analysis of a fission width distribution is to give an apparent number of channels open greater than the actual number open. This is demonstrated both by a numerical experiment and by analytical considerations. A set of resolution probabilities is postulated such that when the apparent distribution is calculated from the true distribution, the effective number of degrees of freedom increases by a specific amount. The theory is applied to the experimental set of fission widths for neutron fission of 235U in both the J = 3 and 4 states.Show more - ItemAn evaluation of the charge exchange rate coefficients for the hydrogen isotopes in plasmas(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1982-06) Cook, JL; Rose, EK
Show more The charge exchange rate coefficients for hydrogen isotopes are evaluated and the average over a Maxwellian spectrum is carried out analytically. Applications to tokamak calculations are also considered.Show more - ItemEvaluation of the Gilbert-Cameron level density parameters(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1977-09) Rose, EK; Cook, JL
Show more Level densities of 20U nuclides were fitted to the Gilbert-Cameron level density formula with satisfactory results. New shell and pairing corrections were obtained which led to most calculated level spacings being within the experimental error of the measured level spacings.Show more - ItemGUNYA - a system of codes for the preparation of gymea cross section data libraries(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1966-09) Cook, JL
Show more A system of computer programmes called GUNYA is described which prepares multigroup cross section information suitable for input to the burnup code GYMEA.Show more - ItemMultiparticle collisions. Part 1 - angular momentum eigenstates.(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1966-11) Cook, JL
Show more The current situation with regard to relativistic representation of multiparticle angular momentum eigenstates is reviewed and it is concluded that no generally satisfactory formalism exists. Difficulties with the formalism are outlined and a general method of construction of partial wave amplitudes is put forward.Show more - ItemMultiparticle collisions. Part 2 - application of unitarity.(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1966-11) Cook, JL
Show more The application of unitarity to multiparticle production processes is studied and relationships between production and scattering amplitudes are derived.Show more - ItemNote on the adler-adler resonance formalism(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1971-11) Cook, JL
Show more Over restricted energy ranges, the Adler-Adler method of parameterising resonance cross sections is in general the exact result of inverting the channel matrix. This provides a simple analytical form for the cross section which can be used in reactor physics calculations.Show more - ItemOn the non-invariance of distributions of reaction matrix parameters under changes in boundary conditions(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1972-03) Bertram, WK; Cook, JL
Show more Contrary to current opinion, the statistical distributions of level spacings and reduced widths when applied to the reaction matrix, are not invariant under changes in the boundary condition matrix or the matching radius. General arguments are given, together with specific examples which violate the invariance requirements. We conclude that it is the parameters of the collision matrix which should be analysed and considered as the invariant parameters.Show more - ItemSCORCH - a zero dimensional plasma evolution and transport code for use in small and large TOKAMAK systems(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1984-12) Clancy, BE; Cook, JL

The method will reproduce reaction data to the accuracy with which the reaction matrix can be least squares fitted to a sum of simple poles.Show more - ItemSolutions of the relativistic two-body problem II quantum mechanics(Australian Atomic Energy Commission, 1972-08) Cook, JL
Show more This second paper of a series discusses the formulation of the quantum mechanical equivalent of the relative time classical theory put forward in Part 1. The relativistic wave function is derived and a covariant addition theorem put forward which allows a covariant scattering theory to be established. The free particle eigenfunctions are not plane waves and a covariant partial wave analysis is given. A means is given by which wave functions which yield probability densities in 4-space can be converted to ones yielding the equivalent 3-space density. Bound states are considered and covariant analogues are given of the harmonic oscillator potential, Coulomb potential, the square well potential, and two-body fermion interactions.

Expansions for these functions for small values of the variable and their asymptotic behaviour are derived. The functions are tabulated for products of up to seven variates. Some simple integrals related to the functions are given.Show more
