Statistical Estimates of Thermal Neutron Capture Cross Sections

Yuri V. Petrov and Alexander I. Shlyakhter

Nuclear Science and Engineering, 89(3): 280-281, 1985


Fluctuations of neutron resonance parameters result in the observed distributions of the thermal neutron capture cross sections. The statistical approach allowing for quantitative estimates of unknown thermal cross sections is presented. The calculated distribution of the cross sections is compared with recent data.
