Nuclear process theory: a symbolic model for representing nuclear physics processes
Nuclear Process Theory (NPT) models nuclear physics processes using a formal grammar. This, in turn, allows one to write computer programs which simulate nuclear process interactions. Knowledge of the nuclear physics process is expressed in terms of a basic nuclear physics model and an aggregate effects model. The basic nuclear physics model has the capability of expressing knowledge of nuclear physics process for different types of reactions. The products of reactions can be expressed in terms of either deterministic or probabilistic values. The aggregate effects model is used to simulate nuclear physics processes.
