Title: P{sup N}FE component of the UNIC code.

Abstract

A code package called UNIC is currently under development at Argonne (Argonne National Laboratory). This new code package is focused on high fidelity solutions for nuclear reactor plant operations. The focus of this paper is the development of a spherical harmonics method used to solve the neutron transport equation. This new code, called P{sub N}FE, is just one of the components of UNIC. P{sub N}FE is targeted for use on massively parallel platforms using the PETSc library developed at ANL. In this paper, an overview of the theory behind the spherical harmonics method is given along with some results obtained with a parallel implementation of the code.
