* Early payment discount, applies when the registration payment is received in full at least 4 weeks before the start of class.

* Classes may be cancelled or postponed if fewer than 8 students register. Maximum of 15 students per class.

* If a class is marked as FULL, CANCELLED, or COMPLETED, then you cannot register for it.

Introductory classes are for those who have little or no experience with MCNP. This class surveys the features of MCNP so the beginning user will be introduced to the capabilities of the program, and will have hands-on experience at running the code to solve simple problems. Course topics include Basic Geometry, Source Definitions, Output(Tallies), Advanced Geometry (repeated structures specification), Variance Reduction Techniques, Statistical Analysis, Criticality, Plotting of Geometry and Tallies, and Neutron / Photon / Electron Physics.

Intermediate classes are designed for people who have some experience in running MCNP Monte Carlo calculations, but would like to refresh or advance their skills. It covers a quick overview of the MCNP basics and then advances into more complex features within the code. In addition to the basic introduction material covering code input, geometry, plotting, sources, tallies, physics tables, criticality, and variance reduction, the intermediate level class topics include: Advanced CSG Geometry (universes, lattices, repeated structures); Advanced Source Definitions (repeated sources, surface source read/write); Advanced Tallies & Variance Reduction (repeated tallies, perturbations, pulse-height tallies, dxtran, weight windows); Introduction to Parameter Studies, Intrinsic Source Generation, MCNPTools.

Advanced classes - Variance Reduction, Criticality, & Unstructured Mesh are for people with MCNP experience who want to extend their knowledge and gain depth of understanding.  Most areas of MCNP operation will be discussed in detail, with emphasis on Advanced Geometry, Advanced Variance Reduction Techniques, and other advanced features of the program. Time will be available to discuss approaches to specific problems of interest to participants. Classes on specific topics are offered when there is sufficient interest.

NOTE: While MCNP supports a number of platforms, LANL class computers are Windows based.
