The Neutron Transport & Reactor Physics research group at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of neutron transport theory and fundamental core physics. The group’s interests also include experimental core physics and in-core stochastic optimization.

The group’s research encompasses various topics, including developing advanced neutron transport corrections for the multigroup neutron diffusion equation, studying innovative evolutionary algorithms for optimizing core design, and conducting neutron transport calculations for neutrino experiments in the European Spallation Source (ESS).

As the only academic research group in Israel studying nuclear fission chain reaction and neutron transport in nuclear reactors, the Neutron Transport & Reactor Physics research group is an essential pillar of the Unit of Nuclear Engineering at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. The researchers and students in the group come from diverse scientific backgrounds, including physics, mathematics, and engineering. Our expertise range from applied mathematics, bifurcation theory, and integrodifferential PDEs to nuclear interactions, differential and integral neutron transport theory, and stochastic evolutionary optimization algorithms.

The group values originality, creativity, and nonintuitive perspectives, and encourages researchers to think outside the box, approach problems with a nonlinear attitude, and embrace symmetry-breaking thinking. Along with these traits, the group also values academic excellence, Hutzpah, and ambitiousness.
The Neutron Transport & Reactor Physics research group believes in the power of
multidisciplinary collaboration to address complex scientific challenges and to
promote innovative and groundbreaking research.



With us, you can expect the unexpected! (but in a good way).
