Title: Covariances in the Generalized Nuclear Data (GND) Structure

The Generalized Nuclear Data structure (GND) is being designed as a new standard for storing evaluated nuclear data. It is intended as an eventual replacement for the ENDF-6 format, and as such must be capable of handling at a minimum all the types of data supported by ENDF-6, including central values and covariances. Containers for storing covariances in GND are being developed, with the goal of representing covariance data in a simple and concise manner, that is easy to read, understand and use. This paper presents an overview of the status of covariances in GND, and on the tools for generating and using covariance data that are being implemented in LLNL's nuclear data toolkit ‘Fudge’.
