McClarren Publishes Textbook on Computational Nuclear Engineering 
and Radiological Science

nwelding   April 28, 2018

McClarren Publishes Textbook on Computational Nuclear Engineering 
and Radiological Science Ryan McClarren’s new book, Computational Nuclear Engineering and Radiological Science Using Python, offers a sharp contrast to traditional texts that focus on theory and those that promote the use of legacy programming languages for nuclear engineering and radiological science applications.
