Abstract

This paper describes summation calculations of \( {{\bar{v}}_{d}} \) and the time dependence of delayed neutron emission using a preliminary version of JEF2. The sensitivity of \( {{\bar{v}}_{d}} \) to fission yields and P n values, and the effects of the models used to generate complete yields and P n sets are studied.
