Abstract

An information system which can be used to calculate nuclide transmutation in nuclear reactors is described. The algorithms developed are based on a directed nuclide transformation graph and improve the speed of the calculations. The calculations are performed using a nuclear physics constants database with the latest evaluations which improves the reliability of the results obtained.
