Introduction Intro_RXSP
The accuracy of the nuclear cross section data is a prerequisite for the accuracy of reactor neutron transport calculations, i.e. MC method. RXSP is a nuclear Cross Section Processing code  being originally developed by REAL group, Department of Engineering Physics, Tsinghua University, which is mainly intended to reactor analysis.  The current version is RXSP-Beta 2.0 released in August,2013 domestically in China Mainland. The Beta3.0 version is being developed jointly by UNIST and Tsinghua University(per the agreement of Prof. Lee and Prof. WANG).
