Computational Results on Quadratic Functional Model for the Tokens of Nuclear Safety
Abstract: In this work, Nuclear Reactor safety was modeled inform of quadratic functional. The nuclear tokens are structured and used as elements of the control matrix operator in our quadratic functional. The numerical results obtained through Conjugate Gradient Method (CGM) algorithm identify the optimal level of safety required for Nuclear Reactor construction at any particular situation.
