Otherwise, this approximation has seemed adequate up to now for the propagation of uncertainties inherent in nuclear data in analysis of fast reactor cores (12) (and probably in thermal reactor shields) and marginally adequate for fast reactor shields (13) and thermal reactor cores (14). Unless a few-group approximation is employed, the symmetric nuclear data uncertainty matrix is very large, especially if one keeps separate the contributions of the various nuclides and partial cross-sections. Traditionally, the data vector is built up of segments for each material, further subdivided by reaction type and then energy.
In such analyses the linear uncertainty quantities like oa often are called disturbances or errors; they correspond not to mistakes but to the differences of unsure sign and magnitude that are represented by the density function. c.
