In attempting to base a ROP system on sound physics principles, one must adopt the criterion that protection is provided for every flux shape which can occur. Guaranteeing protection for a basis set of flux shapes only provides a necessary but not a sufficient condition that this criterion has been met. The general degree of protection can be investigated by looking at an expression for the neutron flux, and seeing how that information is transmitted by the ROP system algorithms. An actual solution for the flux is not intended, a formal expression for the neutron flux which satisfies the time-dependent transport operator can be used. A simple analytical example of how this technique permits choices between ROP algorithms is discussed to illustrate the technique.

Angular momentum sum-rule analysis of T= 1/2 mirror nuclei in the 2s-1d shell
J.A. Hall and I.P. Johnstone
Physical Review C. Volume 26, Number 5, September 1982
Empirical data from single particle transfer reactions on the stable members of T = 1/2 mirror pairs in the 2s - 1d shell are analyzed using sum rules to obtain information about the expectation values of the neutron and proton angular momenta, and spins of states in neighboring nuclei. The analysis provides estimates of ....
