## About

*Nuclear* is the first of a series of ‘deep dives’ — series of essays in which I hope to take the reader from zero knowledge to a solid foundation of understanding for typically technical topics. This series will focus on nuclear physics and the associated reactor theory and is based on the *Department of Energy Fundamentals Handbook* for Nuclear Physics and Reactor Theory.

This series will include elements of atomic and nuclear physics, radioactivity, fission, neutron characteristics, reactivity, control rods, subcritical multiplication, reactor kinetics, and reactor operation.
