Feasibility of breeding in hard spectrum boiling water reactors with oxide and nitride fuels
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2011)
This study assesses the neutronic, thermal-hydraulic, and fuel performance aspects of using nitride fuel in place of oxides in Pu-based high conversion light water reactor designs. Using the higher density nitride fuel ...
D-branes, gauge theory and string field theory
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2002)
In this thesis, we present several works done in last three years. They include three directions in the string theory. In the first direction, we use the brane setup to find mirror pairs of SO(n) and Sp(k) gauge groups for ...
