Title: On-the-fly nuclear data processing methods for Monte Carlo simulations of fast spectrum systems

Abstract

The presentation summarizes work performed over summer 2015 related to Monte Carlo simulations. A flexible probability table interpolation scheme has been implemented and tested with results comparing favorably to the continuous phase-space on-the-fly approach.
